Hello all, quick question regarding a mixup of mine.

A user of mine deleted a category in my file mgmt section of the site and it had roughly 200 files in it. I have a backup of the site from recently, including the databases, and I am wondering how easy it would be to restore the old tables to the database so that I don't have to manually re-upload every one of these files. Possible? Thanks.

I'm not sure what your asking - Is it possible - totally Neutral

Thats what backups are for. If the files are still there - restore the filemgmt tables or else selectively replace the filemgmt_category record for the category definition and the file records (if missing) - filemgmt_ filedetail and filemgmt_desc records.

This is assuming you are comfortable with phpmyAdmin. If not then if this is important to you, you can get personal support from me at www.portalparts.com.

Thanks so much Blaine. I'll restore the tables--I'm comfortable with phpMyAdmin. Smile
