XF 1.4 Accidentally Deleted a Forum Section

    Well, I feel like a silly goose. I accidentally deleted a forum section. I am looking for how to restore it, or find all the threads, posts, and what not, and move them to a new forum section. I am not terribly familiar with what to do, and it will likely need the attention of our developer, but does anyone have advice for what to do?

    A friend did find this article: https://xenforo.com/community/threa...section-through-the-backup.67119/#post-705167

    Could we do something similar?

    Do you have a recent backup?

    I don't know. I have to ask our developer. If we don't is there a way to recover the threads?

    a competent host will likely do automatic backups behind the scene. maybe contact them and ask them about it. be aware it would likely result in a complete rollback to a particular date... maybe even a week or two into the past.

    I suggest closing the forum until you restore from your last backup.

    When you delete a forum, it removes the content within it, so yes, you'll need to restore from a backup.
