baker7 Posted March 29, 2011 Report Share Posted March 29, 2011 Good Afternoon everyone:Just a quick question: I KNOW that you are supposed to backup wordpress databases PRIOR to running an upgrade, but something happened one day on one of our servers that caused a white screen of death when logged in as an admin on the server. I did not backup anything proior to the upgrade of the server in question, which was running a network upgrade to version 3.1. It HUNG, and then when attempting to login again it showed me a login screen, but when you login, you get a white screen.Is there a way to somwhow go through the wordpress and xampp installs to see where the database files may be hiding?? Ii I could find them, I may be able to put the databases back and fix the problem, but I had to reinstall xampp and wordpress (however I DID save the old files from the old installations of both).Seems as if the ONLY way to get these things is to make them all SQL files...........is there any hope of saving the posts/setup from the old setup even after reinstalling wordpress so that I can access this stuff?If someone could give me advice or a hand here, I would appreciate it - Lucky for me, on BBUS, I backup databases regularly using phpmyadmin!
