My WP interface is shot for some reason. I can't upload any files through the WP interface (but I can via ftp), comment moderation is kaput, and a number of plugins stopped working. I've tried everything under the sun to figure out what's wrong & have struck out pretty much.
My host offered to restore my site to its last saved iteration fr. July 1st. I'm terrified, but attracted to the idea of doing this since hopefully I will regain all the features I've lost. The terror comes fr. the fact that I could lose some of the data I've added since 7/1.
I've already once followed the codex instructions to do a backup. If I choose to restore the site back--is there anything special or different for what I'll be doing that I should be aware of? And once the site reverts back to 7/1 what would I do to restore the posts, comments, etc. added after that? After all, I don't want to import back into my installation all the bugs or conflicts that somehow crept into it & trashed all those features mentioned above.
The other alternative would be not to restore the site back to 7/1 & try to live with the limitations. Carthik has said that when he returns fr. India he'll try to give things a look. If I chose this option at least I know Carthik knows what he's doing. I don't have as much confidence in myself.
