[closed] New Akismet API key wiped out years of comments (2 posts)

    I use WordPress through Yahoo Small Business.

    This morning I was prompted to get my own Akismet API key.

    When I did, and updated my Akismet plugin with the new key, it wiped out all of the comments -- many years' worth -- in the WordPress dashboard.

    Also, I now get a 404 error when I try to submit a test comment through my blog (http://chrisbarton.info/blog/2014/06/games-books-qa-carly-kocurek.html/comment-page-#comment-)

    Any ideas for how to go about recovering the old comments and allowing/moderating new ones?

    Thanks a bunch for any help you can provide.
