XF 1.5 Forums disappeared after restore

I had to back up a database but for some reason the many sections of the forum I created have disappeared both from the forum and from the admincp, although they are present in phpmyadmin.
Why all this? How can I fix it?
Thanks in advance.

Sounds like your backup script didn't actually back everything up then, do you have another backup that you can get the xf_node data from?
