    Hi guys,

    I dont know how it happened, but my worst nightmare has just come true.

    One of my domains on my dedicated server somehow got all the files deleted. As in everything including my backups.

    is there any way to recover these deleted files? They are not in the trash folder.

    I made a backup of the wordpress site this morning. If i could just recover that zip file which was in the wp-content/uploads/wp-clone/ folder

    Honestly I have very limited knowledge of server admin.

    Thanks for the help
    Albert

    the server should be setup to make daily or weekly backups so you can simply restore the domain from whm. check the backup folder to see if you have a copy. check in /backup

    If you don't take backups offsite or to another drive on the server you can't.

    Hello,

    If you have configured daily or weekly backups on your server through WHM then you can able to restore your account using that backup.
