Best advice to restore partial backup - in a Wordpress-blog..?

Automatic upgrade on WORDPRESS got stuck.
(May have been due to the hosting company that did not have support for the latest php - which I later saw was required for this version.)
Since it was impossible to log on to my blog (admin) - I messed around with this - until I could login.
(Went into CPanel and removed some plugs - and then I came in)

Now I can login - but I can not update WP - and I can not update plugs.
To this comes that the functionality of the blog is damaged.
It is possible to look at the blog - but it does not function fully as normal.


It can be as easy - as to update Wordpress manually.
(checked on it - but do not quite grasp exactly how to do it)

I also have a backup from CPanel if needed:
- Partial Backups
- MySQL Database Backup


QUESTIONS:

- WOULD MY BACKUPS RESTORE MY WHOLE WORDPRESS-SITE?(OR JUST PART OF IT...?)
- DO I HAVE MY WHOLE SITE IN THOSE TWO BACKUPS - OR IS SOMETHING MISSING?

IF MY TWO BACKUPS COULD RESOLVE THE PROBLEM...
- IS IT JUST TO RESTORE BACKUP - USING THE CPANEL?(I COULD DO THAT)

- SHOULD I RESTORE BOTH BACKUPS OR JUST START WITH ONE OF THEM?

I´M A LITTLE UNSURE HERE - NEVER DONE IT - SO A LITTLE HELP WOULD BE VERY APPRECIATED.
I WOULD NOT WANT TO MAKE THE PROBLEM WORSE...

WHAT IS THE BEST ADVICE HERE..?:confused:


Best Regards and thanks in advance!;):)

Your backup could be used, possibly. Instead though I'd suggest you speak with your host to check file and directory owner and permission for the wordpress. If the server does not have SuPHP you might just need to sort out owner and permissions. Uploading files via a PHP script can cause some issues without SuPHP.

A little late but anyway...
I tried everything but got at last help from a paid supportguy who repaired the site quite easily.
It was just a little backup from DB and content - a little teamwork - and then he restored the site.
I gave him 175 dollars and it was worth every dime!
I could not have done it.


Thanks for reply!


Best wishes!
