  • So, if you have database connection details, I’d suggest grabbing the latest copy of WordPress and then placing the file wp-config-sample.php from the download into the root of the transferred site. Navigate to the site, complete the form and you should be good to go.

    I don’t think I do have the database connection details… I don’t have the database name! Can this be tracked back from the URL?

    Sorry, I mis-read, I thought you meant your wp-config.php was missing. So, if it’s your wp-login.php that’s missing, do what I said but upload the new wp-login.php file.

    If you haven’t got a copy of the old database anywhere, you’re not really going to recover any content.

    Is there any way it could be recovered from cached versions of the site that are kept on Google etc?

    Way Back Machine perhaps?
