I’m going to show you how to manually restore a website that has been broken
But I’m actually going to do is delete my entire website :
because we have the backup of all the files and folders and the database.
We can recreate the website and I’ll eat the whole website before the
website was WordPress database setting deleted and this is something.
You could do after your second act or after something breaks when you update
your thing that you plug into your profiles.
You always want to make sure you have a backup before you do anything major
just in case something goes wrong you can then :get your site back online
as quickly as possible.
word-press database migration
We see the current state of the website this is our demo site WP – peace
I don’t believe this whole website right now .
How we do that as we go into a roasting account and we go to the file manager
we open the document the route for that website and these are all the website files.
Right here pretty quick on the first one the highlighted scroll :down hold down, the shift
key and click last one that had all of them and then click on delete and then delete
files just takes a few moments for them to be deleted .
Now they’re all gone and we are going to go back to the website and refresh and
see what happens nothing their website is gone now but I’m also going to do is
delete the database .
We go back into the seat i have to scroll down to the place where we have the PHP my
admin option Garrett and i check the date I can take before before you
leave the site and my website name as flower pots .
I’m going to find that database and we’re going to do what’s called drop the database
which is the bicycle term for delete Sweden list of databases and left me find the
flowerpots database scroll down to the very bottom .
Database update required
When she’s checking with, checks at all of the tables and then in the drop-down with
selected we choose- to drop has asked that we really- want to drop all these tables
we do now this database the fireplace database , has no tables found in the database.
Now we have deleted all the WordPress files, and folders and the WordPress database
that we can restore it from the back of that we made that how we do
that is virtually wp-config store all the files.
If you would call or if you even watch the video we had that we downloaded zip file
and then special and this is the father of this :
is the zip file regular WordPress database settings contains all the websites
Folders i click on the “button on the bottom right it shows that the upload is
starting can you give us an estimated time for how long it will take to upload those how to
pause a video while it uploads when it’s done .
I’ll be back to work the upload is completed and we can actually close this upload file
tab and then if we refresh the file manager to see that are zipped file has been uploaded
to extract a zip file and click on it and then click on extract .
Error table doesn’t exist
It will extract all the files directly into this folder as well so we can leave all these
options as an extract files it takes a few moments to extract and then I get a list of all the
files that were extracted: to look up close reload this page again .
Now we see all oversight files are back or delete the backup the server because
we don’t want to save files on the server just because that’s a security risk now .
We have other files *back in if we go back to our website where there’s really nothing
there for refresh the page and now has a WordPress installation minutes even go back.
Install WordPress again with that the day- you lose all your data or not going to
do that we actually want to do is we want to upload our database the database :
We backed up previously so if we go back to our” flowerpots database or which were deleted earlier in the video that we can go to the import :option was to have the talk with an import you said leave
all the settings as they are just click ,on the browse button choose your file to import which
in this case is about SQL file .
Database not showing in phpmyadmin cpanel
Then click on go takes a few moments to upload or import that file database
who have a message that says imported successfully finished 244 is executed to know.
If we go back and click on the structure for the database we should see all the
tables over there before we deleted it and it looks like they are all there but it’s really dark .
I didn’t memorize the mall WordPress database settings we go back to our:
website here we go to the homepage we
can go to their website is back online just the way it was before we deleted it all .
That is how you manually: restore a website from your files and folders backup and
your database backup and this holds true also for a lot of back-up plans with only export a
zip file that contains a database .
