[resolved] Recover lost forms from backup? (3 posts)

    I ran into issues trying to update the plugin and had to completely remove it and install fresh. I want to restore the forms rather than recreate them. Where are they stored? I don't have a WP backup but I do have an entire server backup tape to work with.

    They are in the database. Search entries with post_type 'wpcf7_contact_form' in the wp_posts table.

    I was only able to find the default form that comes with the plugin installation. I was hoping they were moved somewhere else but no luck. Looks like there was a problem with the backup. Thanks for the help.
