Support » Fixing WordPress » Reload old blog?

  • Hi, I recently downloaded and installed the latest version of WordPress which bumped my old blog. Is there a way to recover that content and load it into the new version with my new theme? I started a new site (as I’m actually revamping someone elses old website) but it would be nice to have all of that old content for a fuller site. Using CPanel with my host.

    Thanks in advance

  • site content is saved to the MySQL database associated with each site…you will need to recover the database and point to it in wp-config.php.

    By “recover” you mean go to CPanel file manager and drag and drop from MySQL to wp-config.php or open up wp-config.php and point it to MySQL?

    Sorry, I’m new to this…obviously.

    Alright, I recovered the old MySQL through the file recovery app. I now have it in .ZIP, do I go through wordpress and point wp-config.php to the rcovered MySQL or do I do that through CPanel?


    If you’re using phpMyAdmin, you can import it in using the import tool after having opened the database. If you’ve just recovered the MySQL database but its named differently, you’ll need to edit wp-config.php to match.
