I tried to install wordpress in a newly created directory. No idea what went wrong, it installed in root directory and all of my old database gone. My original 10 years old website became new worldpress. I had backed up a long back in 2009. How can I restore to the recent ? Do godaddy keep backup? ... pls help 😞
Check the status of your backups here. A key setting will be whether or not you setup automatic backups - just follow the wizard or click into the Backups folder and see if there are any file/subfolders. If you haven't already, call GoDaddy support. They will walk you through a search on your server for backups.
Also, look under your my-phpadmin panel and see if there are any restores that you may have made as updated your site.
