Whilst upgrading to wordpress 3.5.2 and needing to resort to the latest backup of the wordpress database when things went wrong, I discovered that the msql dump for the database is not the most recent, in fact it could be from as many as three months ago. How is this possible?
This has cost me a client so I am warning people to check that the database backup is actually a current version, and not a copy of an old file with a new date. Although the full backup was dated a few days ago, the database backup included with it was certainly not.
So now, how do I get the database back???
