Ok so right before my forum got all messed up and went back to the original self of nothing i made a backup throguh cpanel on my forum. So i was just wondering how to get my forum back up and working. Will this backup help and how. Can someone use it to help me get my forum back?
Did you get a database + file backup, or just a file backup?
i got the mysql daabase and file backup i got the whole file backup
1. To restore a database, you click the SQL tab (on newer versions of phpMyAdmin there is an "Import" tab).
2. On the "SQL"-page , unclick the show query here again.
3. Browse to your backup of the database.
4. Click "Go".

Then you'll have the posts, threads, basically all user content. But not the actual files.

You have to upload the database in phpMyAdmin.

Then you'll have to ask your host to restore it for you.
