I goofed big time...
Is there anyway to get my thread back?
I know the URL?
And yes I chose the option to permanently delete the thread...
I was trying to mass delete a members messages that he removed from the forum.
Have to restore from a backup
Delete as in permanently? The second option in this screenshot?
Unfortunately the clue is in the text... Permanent and irreversible.
Your only solution is if you have a recent back up. You could restore the thread from that.
Create a second database, import your database backup into it, find the thread and export it, import the thread back into other database
Yes, Permanently SMH
My most recent backup was a week ago but the thread is new.
Lesson Learned - O Well
Try and back up daily if you can. Even if it's just a daily dump of your database.
Thanks for the fast response anyway guys
If you had a backup containing that thread then it would be possible to do what Mike said:
Basically you are isolating the thread and post records for that one thread. Then you export those specific records as a data-only backup and import that backup into the live database. This requires some dexterity but it's doable. Note that this method would not restore joined records (namely attachments).
and consider a new host that does daily back ups
OT, that's my name
Just the first post I found.
I didn't delete anything
