Hello!

I made the huge mistake! Accidently I have pressed full backup restoration instead of website restoration and now all the data that was in the database for last 3 months is lost! Can anyone help me with this problem! I need that data urgently!!!! Please help!

Do you only have that backup from 3 months ago? No backup from yesterday for example?
Unfortunately, unless you don't have recent backups there's no way to restore your database to the state it was before the restore you did.

I haven't done any backups since august.. So no.. But I have a paid feature on my VPS - daily and weekly backups. Maybe they can restore it..

Hello!

I would reach out to your hosting provider if you pay for a backup service. If you do have full root access, I would also consider making daily or weekly backups if you have the available disk space.


I do hope this helps.
