Great plug in and I’ve had the worst happen.
I posted this in another thread, but that one said it was “resolved” so I wasn’t sure if you’d see it.
My website was hacked and I’m now trying to restore it from the backup.
I followed your instructions here: http://www.mikeyd.com.au/2011/10/26/restoring-wordpress-from-a-backup-to-dropbox-using-cpanel-and-phpmyadmin/
But I have an issue.
I’m trying to restore this website on a different hosting service. So the database names for the SQL file don’t match.
Trying to restore it as you described returns an error message telling me I can’t create new database and access is denied. Is this because the new host has a different prefix on the database than the old host?
Are there different instructions some place for restoring a website on another hosting server?
I already created a new database and got the WP files uploaded, changed the wp-config.php files to point at the new database and this got my website up, but I’m missing all the database files, pictures and theme formating.
Any help you can provide would be amazing.
Love the plug in, it’s super simple. I know I have anything I need, just need some guidance on how to use it.
P.S. Also I noticed there are 2 SQL back ups, one for the “core” files and one for “plug-ins”
How do I use these? Your link didn’t specify that there would be 2.
