Support » Installing WordPress » Restore backup problem

  • Resolved howarddt


    Hi there

    I had an old version of word press running on another server. i backed it up as per instructions in the help files. I then downloaded 2.2 and installed that on a new server. Once 2.2 was installed ok, I reinstalled the old blog into the database via php myadmin as per the instructions in the help files.

    My blog now looks like this…

    There is an error message plus all of the posts are now archived but I cannot access them. Please could someone have a look and see if there’s a simple solution for me. I am quite a newbie but have managed to do simple blogging for a year and have quite a lot of posts that i don’t want to lose.

    Thank you

  • Everything looks fine to me. What version where you upgrading from. Most likely you just hadn’t upgraded your database. After you upgrade wordpress it’s best to go ahead and try to log in because then it will ask you to update your database.


    Thanks for getting back to me – it seems like it needed some time to resolve or something because the current blog looks great now.
