Thanks for helping Christoph. :)
My hosts contacted me and they said they do have a full backup for the
entire site from Tuesday. Its not the best option for me since I have
forums, so we would lose many posts. But ofcourse, if there is no
alternative this is what I will do.
As for my attempts, the error I got when I tried to import the database
through phpmyadmin was " #1050 - Table 'be_groups' already exists. "
When I tried through SSH Putty, the command seemed to go through, and
the tables were created, but no data was there - all the pages, users,
etc was gone.
Its pretty weird since usually when I restored backups before it worked.
Not sure why its not working now.
Have any possible ideas?
