Restore WordPress from Backup – Even if you can't access WP

Anderson , Sao Paulo – Brazil – #Justhost, the worst hosting service that I ever hired today – To begin with they take up more than a day to answer a ticket and if you want a faster customer service you have to pay for it! System is poorly installed and configured and slow. I even had trouble with serious bad blocks on server for almost a week! 5 times suspended my account saying I had used up system resources permitted. IN NO ANY TIMES they made any advance warning that there was a problem. To complicate do not have the option to observe the use of server resources in real time as in good hosting services. Finally on April 16 they canceled my account out of nowhere without warning saying it had extrapolated the memory usage on the server. The same sites and scripts ran on the server MORE THAN 3 MONTHS without change! How can a sudden the same scripts now to cause excessive memory usage??? And for they I’m always the culprit! If you do not want to have a headache with lousy service disrespect lack of attention and not take damage DO NOT USE THE SERVICES OF #JUSTHOST!

Let me show you how to restore WordPress from backup. This will work even if you can’t access WP.

I will show how to do theme and plugins restore in file manager. Also we will restore WordPress database.

You will need access to your cPanel and you will need to have backup files for this to work. Here is how you can backup WordPress:

If you don’t have any backups and your WordPress website has crashed. Try troubleshooting your issues by checking this video:

So you can restore manually any parts of the site as long as you have all the required files backed up. In my example I updated themes file, however you could just swap the whole wp-content folder.

    I am getting a "Error establishing a database connection". I think this must be because I just uninstalled WP then just recently decided to try to restore my site with a backup. Maybe permission issues or something?
