Undelete Forum - Andrew B. - 2010-11-11

Is it possible to undelete a forum? If so, how?


RE: Undelete Forum - Sajuuk - 2010-11-11

Nope, you can't undelete a forum. When it's deleted, it's gone forever.


RE: Undelete Forum - nisar87 - 2010-11-11

i saw a plugin that do exactly what you mean, but i forget where i read about that plugin.
but surly the deleted post after installation of that plugin can be retrieve because may be it store your deleted posts in some temp table (database)


RE: Undelete Forum - Sajuuk - 2010-11-11

IIRC, Forums aren't stored in the datacache table. And I'm almost sure there are no such plugins that can recover a deleted section on your forums.

i mean this plugin

RE: Undelete Forum - Andrew B. - 2010-11-11

I don't know if this makes a difference, but I need to recover the messages that were in the forum, not the forum itself. The messages could be placed in any of the other forums.

I have a feeling this is possible via direct query of the database, along with editing a field that that says where the message goes. I assume there is no automatic packing after deletion.

Unless you have a server back-up, no.


RE: Undelete Forum - Matt - 2010-11-11

Delete means delete, so as Uncontrol said, unless you, or your host, has a backup with this data in it, then it's gone.


RE: Undelete Forum - TonyMontana - 2010-11-11

To my understanding, posts are stored in the MYSQL database. So unless you have a backup of that, it's gone forever.

Just to clarify, the database is still there. The MyBB is still there. The other forums are still there.

But I am contacting my host to see if they have backups.
