WP tables gone, install.php message
Suddenly, without me doing anything, no installation, upgrade or any change at all, I have no availability to my blog, I just get the message:
“It doesn’t look like you’ve installed WP yet. Try running install.php”.
When I take a check by phpMyAdmin, my tables in the WP database is gone. (It’s only a few left which I connect to some WP Plugins I have had).
What could have caused this?
My webhost, at first approach, doesn’t think they’ve done something and was mentioning security holes in installed scripts?
At the August 21 they moved my account (among others) from one server to another to ease the burdon for the other server.
When they had done that I got a similar message but that I needed to upgrade to the latest version. (Had 2.0.4 on the old server and here it was 2.0.2) So I clicked for the upgrade and everything went well. It was upgraded to 2.0.4.
Then I noticed that they had put an old backup from the 10th of August there, which they corrected. Still, the missed files (mostly images) I had put up there between the 10th and the 21th. No problem, I put them back myself.
Since then everything has been working except from the sitemap plugin, which did work on the other server with the same version.
I have NOT done any changes other from maybe some small changes in the sidebar.php.
Suddenly tonight, I have no WP database. When I take a look in the Controlpanel (normally the installs/upgrades are done from here) it says that I have WP version 2.0.2, how can that be when it was upgraded the 21th to 2.0.4?
What would you do in this situation?
I still have some contact with the webhost. If they/I put back a backup of the database (don’t know yet if there are any fresh ones done…), is that gonna help or must I run this install script?
Or do you have any other suggestions to make?
I’m very tired, it’s 02:30 in the morning here, so I may go to bed and hopefully when I wake up again, you (or they) have come with some nice help for me…
