XF 1.2 Recover/view permanently deleted post.

#1
Hi,

One of my moderators deleted an important thread. I have a few questions.

1. How can I locate this thread and undelete ?
2. How can I find out which moderator did that? and if there is a recommendation to have limited permissions to moderators (at least not to be able to delete other moderators threads).

Thanks in advance

Update: For some odd reason I just checked this moderators log and it shows:
Action:
Thread permanently deleted
What the heck? I don't recall to even be online when it happen o_O

Any idea guys? IP looks fine (mine)..

Permanently deleted content can only be restored via a backup.

Any changes made since the backup was taken will be lost.

A DB backup is what I'm pretty sure @Brogan is referring to. And any posts/changes that have been made after the time of the backup will no longer exist if it's restored.

Well, even if so that's impossible then because the forum is very active and we can lose more threads for just 1 to restore, wont make that much sense.

But at least I wished to know how on earth the thread deleted (referring to #1 question) if I've been outside, not near the computer.. must be some bug
