Ah, what a clever idea. Yes it does, and I have written to ask if they have a recent one before I messed this up yesterday. And yes, I have config.php.

I backed up the DB today, stupidly over-writing the one before it (I know, dumb). And I have backups of my postings, though not in WP form exactly, but there were only about a dozen, so I can fix that.

If noy, you could try a full fresh install of WP2.5 get that running with the same plugins as you had before and then use phpMyAdmin to copy your old MySQL over the new. Never had to do this, but I think it will work.
Let’s hope I don’t need to do that!

Good thing about UH is that all sites have a full backup every 6 hours and the backups are kept for 2 weeks. Never had to use it though, and it is of no help to you...
I know, I know.

I found two DB tables in need of repairing, and repaired them, but it didn’t help.

WordPress advice is to clear the DB tables, then rebuild them. If need be, I will do that. From scratch. Grump. This was almost entirely of my old devising (although I am not the only one complaining about problems with the 2.5.1 upgrade, I probably would have escaped in decent health if I hadn’t tried to get clever).
