Retrieving post from old blog (3 posts)

    I set up a blog for a friend on her bludomain server and all was going ok for a few months because i pressed the auto upgrade option.

    Bludomain being completely incompetent are not properly set up to upgrade not to help out where needed so the blog became inaccessible.

    Long story short i downloaded all of the old files onto my hard drive then deleted the old blog off of the blue domain server and reloaded wordpress (which still loaded a much older version of wordpress).

    Is it at all possible to access the post from the downloaded files so that i can import them back into the blog once it is up and running again?

    Cheers guys

    did you back up the database? if yes then setup WP on localhost and import that DB backup. Then export the post from wp-admin and import it to your new online WP.

    No i didn't back it up. I know how to retrieve post that way. Just a download of the blog once sign in was no longer allowed.

    Surely those post must sit in a folder/file somewhere in the downloaded version and can just be transported back over in place of an existing folder on the new install. Is that not the case ?
