Articles missing after update on godaddy

Post by ohmbligo » Tue Oct 13, 2015 5:46 pm

I recently upgraded from 1.7 to 2.5 (security issues) I created a new database and restored it with the content of my old database. However, I think my giant mistake was to update via godaddy portal instead of the administrator panel in my website. My website is currently showing background photos etc. but the articles are not there. I looked on the administrator panel and of course they are not there either. Is there a way that I can fix this without having to input all the article and component items. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I got the site back up.... I just used the old configuration.php file and that solved my problem.
