I was just saying, but then I totally broke it by doing something stupid with the database. Sorry about that.
Of course I didn’t have a back-up; of course I didn’t know what I was doing. I did all the things wrong. All of them.
Although I wasn’t able to retrieve the images, I was still able to retrieve the posts, pages and comments, along with other data, like categories and whatnot, by exporting the relevant tables directly from the database using phpMyAdmin, which, ironically, was the software that allowed me to break it in the first place.
I haven’t got time right now to fix the images or the appearance or even tell you more about what happened because I have to go and buy a dress to wear to a wedding.
Again, sorry for any inconvenience caused, and I hope it will become lovely again soon. And yes, I’ll be looking into making back-ups of my site very soon.
