OK, here’s the thing – I had a local WordPress site installed on a PC that has died (hard disk failure). I had backed up the site, but only in terms of copying all the WP files and folders. When trying to recreate the site on a new PC, I can’t work out how to reconfigure it in a new installation of WP and WAMP. I have also tried this on a MAC using MAMP. It seems I first needed to export the dbase from the dead machine, but as I can’t do this, is there any way of recreating the site without rebuilding from scratch? I had only built pages and created about 6 posts, so I’m not sure what info would have been included in the original dbase. Any help greatly appreciated! I could reinstall on either PC or Mac.
One more thing on this – it seems I may be able to retrieve data from my hard drive but not boot up and use WAMP to export the database. Does anyone know whether I can extract the database from the drive without exporting directly from WAMP?
