Support » Fixing WordPress » restoring comments after diskcrash

  • Hi all,

    a while ago the disk at my ISP crashed. They did their best to restore everything. Most of the restore went fine but the MySQL db caused a few problems. It seems that I have everything back up and running, except for old comments. I’d best illustrate with an example:

    – surf to http://www.van-gils.org/wordpress
    – check the “Doctor” post on June 20, 2006
    – the post claims to have a comment attached to it. If you click the comment, it doesn’t show up.

    I checked the panel->manage->comments and indeed the old comments don’t show up there. My next attempt was to run a

    “select comment_ID, comment_content from wp_comments;”

    on the MySQL prompt. The comments are there… they just don’t show up. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks in advance
