How can I recover my Wordpress articles?

Hi there,

My wordpress blog/website is backed up on dropbox. I am missing two recent blog posts and some photos from posts and my media library has been decimated. (I guess it got hacked?) Last time I saw them was about 10 days ago. Last night I noticed they were missing. Yikes!

How can I restore these items to my wordpress site using dropbox? I need simple, step by step instructions, please!

Thank you

Re: Wordpress blog articles need to be restored


Hi @gerilynntravels, I’m sorry to hear about this.

Are you using a third party app or service to backup your Wordpress site to Dropbox automatically? If so, have you followed their steps to recover the backup for your blog?

Generally these apps or services are a plugin on the Wordpress site, and have their own options to import, export or simply to select a backup to recover using one of the ones on your account.

Let me know what you find out, and if it was successful!
