Hey guys please help me out with this..its really urgent. Since a few months i had been working on putting together a website , and one day my hard disk crashed. I set my pc up again, installed wordpress again using Microsoft Web Matrix. But i want to start my work again frm where i left it(fortunately i have a backup on my pendrive) so can you please help me out in this.
PS: I am able to run a fresh wordpress website. But i want to start from where i left( a lot of work involved :D). The website wasn’t hosted on any web server
Thanks in advance.
I just copied the entire wordpress folder, that is all the files such as themes plugins and all such stuff.(i.e the entire parent folder.)
How are we supposed to backup the database? I didnot host the website was just developing it on a local host..
How are we supposed to backup the database?
So will i be not able to restore my website? At least not fully, what are the portions of the website that i will be able to restore?
Not much with exception of the themes and plugins you have installed, as well as your media library. . If you didn’t back up the database, you lose all users, all posts, all pages, just to name a few things.
For restoring, review:
DJDoubleXL189 as i said my website wasnt hosted on a web server, so i wont be losing any users and important data. Will the customizations and edits i made to the theme and plugin be restored?
And please me know of how i can use the backup which i have( i just copied the entire wordpress folder on which i was working on).
So what i can use with the backup i have is just the theme and plugins which i used? And nothing else?
