  • It is possible, but not easy.
    First, get clear in your head that categories and widgets and posts are all stored in the database. Plugins, themes, and images are stored in files in your wp-content folder. You might have plugins that store other things in files or database.

    You can create a WordPress installation on your computer, and load the information from your old backup. Then you can use plugins to export just the categories or just the widgets from there and import to your live site.
    Or export from your live site just the recent work you’ve done, and import it to your local copy to merge with the old backup. Then migrate the whole thing to your live site.

    You will need to look at some plugins to help you do this.

    hi 😀 Thank you for your answer, i didn’t had alert mail and didn’t saw your mail, i found soluce since, See you ! 😀
