I lost my WordPress Posts

asked Sep 5, 2013 in Website Builder by mike231 (2,480 points)
I overwrote my WordPress site by mistake, and all my posts are gone and now all I have on my site is “Hello World”. My question is, is it possible to retrieve my posts from MySQL DB, Since my last backup was taken quiet a while ago and doesn’t have all my posts. Can anyone please advice?
Appreciate any support

Since you have thee "Hello World" Post!", this  means that you’re now using a new database. So if your original database was deleted without having a backup of it then unfortunately you have lost all your posts. An alternative would be to contact your hosting provider and ask them if its possible to retrieve the site from their own backups.
