View Full Version : Corrupted and reinstalled, nothing there
02-23-2009, 01:49 PM
I added a forum to my site which Pixelpost didn't like very much, it stopped working completely. So I reinstalled it which worked finally, but I have nothing on the site anymore. The pics and thumbnails are there, but nothing is shown since there's no database I guess. Can this be corrected somehow?

What did you reinstall? The files or the database? If all you touched were the files, you should be OK as long as you're using the same database information as before... (IE: Prefix, and Database name)

My old pixelpost database didn't work since installing a forum on my site, so I uploaded everything once again, and configured it again.

Well the database is as important as your pictures. The database stores all your photo titles, descriptions, comments, categories, etc.
So if you forgot to backup your database then you must start all over and re-upload all your photos, type in new descriptions, etc.. All previous comments and settings will be lost.

You may wish to contact your web host, as they may have database backups which they can restore.

I have contacted them and they restored the database, but the only thing that shows now is "Coming Soon! Nothing to show. No image to show here or they are set to show in future!"
