HOW TO RESTORE DATABASE

Postby bluespectra » 24. July 2017 00:14

I un-installed my XAMP and install a new one with a higher version of PHP.

Unfortunately, I forgot to backup my database (s).

Is there any way I can restore the database, please.

Help me, I am working on a project that must be live by Tuesday and I cant start over.

Your help will be appreciated, please.

Thank You

No, the new database has already overwritten the old one. If you do not have any backup, it has gone.

As WordPress stores ALL contents into the database (instead of files or folders), all contents is lost when the database is lost. If you have a full copy of the old Xampp folder, you can retrieve the database from that copy, but if you did not backup the data folder of Mysql, you cannot restore your data.
