    If your data is still on the server and your current host is not blocking you from accessing it, then yes, a new web host should be able to recover everything and migrate your site for you.

    I don't use Plesk so I can't help you there.

    I can see your over your head here. You need help from a host.

    • Contact your existing host to resolve these issues. Or,
    • Get a new hosting company that will attempt to recover your website and database for you.
    LOL! Sorry, that was admin one, I am admin two. She pressed something and everything went...this forum stuff seems so much easier when other people are doing it! So, if we join another server they may be able to get our DB back?

    The files are not that important. What is the most important thing is the db. Without it everything will be lost.

    Save anything you can still access.
    If you can login to your Plesk control panel, try to download a copy of your database if you are allowed.
    If you can FTP into your site, download everything to a folder on your local PC.
    What is FTP and how do I download the DB?

    It redirects because it is missing the : in the url

    Sorry for all the q's...like I said - we are numpties.
    Your forum redirects me to some wiki page. Anyway, check for the name of the db at the config.php file then go to the cp of your host and then phpmyadmin, select the name of your db and export it.

    Sorry, Plesk says that the forum is up and running, but the URL takes us to a page not found page. We are complete noobs at this running forum stuff!

    Database error

    Urgent help!

    We have been looking at moving hosts and this afternoon, I managed to get at FTP client to connect to our current host, however I didn't download anything because I'm not sure what I was doing.

    I went back on to our forum and I got the message that the database doesn't exist!!!

    In our Plesk control panel everything looks normal, the database is still there but it's like they aren't 'speaking' to each other anymore!

    Any ideas for an urgent fix for this please?

    Please keep it VERY simple.
