Support » Fixing WordPress » Need to restore an author and all posts and comments

  • Actually running 2.3.2 (but with the updated xmlrpc.php file)

    When I got hacked a couple weekends ago via the wordspew SQL injection, I made a dumb mistake of deleting the registered user the hacker first created an article under. After the hacker created articles under multiple user names, I realized I had deleted a legitimate user and all their posts and comments!

    I have full cpanel-generated backups from before this happened, how can I pull that specific author’s profile, posts, and comments out of the backup and restore them into the current db?

    At least one of this author’s posts generated dozens of comments that were really great, so I would like to restore that post and all those comments under that post made by other users.
