How Do I Resolve WordPress Backup Issues?
I moved my hosting from Justhost to InMotion last year, at the time I setup a basic website (www.afonsoknifeworks.com) with the intention to get a more professional setup done at a later stage. The site has been active since then however a few weeks ago a friend told me that when he opened my site - he got a couple of strange errors - which were displacing the text / images to the side.
Since then the site has disappeared almost completely. None of the images show up, the only thing which is visible is a couple of menu titles - but nothing happens when they are clicked. I see from my profile that I have a Backup Manager free trial - but I have no idea what / where that is or how to use it.
I would just like to get the original site I created back online, so I can work with a web developer to get a proper site up and running.
How would I go about doing this? Is there any way someone can check the backups and get my site back?
Sorry for the continued headaches. Since you're using WordPress, I'm going to suggest a plugin that should help. These entries are probably stored in the database. You'd have to edit the image links in the page to fix it otherwise. Look for a plugin called "Better Search Replace" (https://wordpress.org/plugins/better-search-replace/). When you have it loaded, log in to your WordPress Administrator Dashboard, go to the Tools section, then select Better Search Replace.
The table you need to search is the wp_posts table. In the Search field you need to type (or paste) this: http://afonsoknifeworks.com/bg_afonsoknifeworks.com/ . In the Replace field you will need to put the correct path http://afonsoknifeworks.com/ . If you leave the option "Run as dry run", then changes will not be made, so make sure to uncheck that option. Click on Run Search/Replace in order to make the change.
I hope this helps! You can also submit a ticket to our technical support team and use my explanation of the issue. If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.
