So, I'm his instructor. I'm good with java, .net, php and other such things (about 25 years experience), but I have never worked with wordpress. I have confirmed that backups were not setup, so there aren't any backups of the site or the mysql. Now, there is one caveat to this. when he told me he had a new job I told him he needed to backup everything with filezilla before he started and I think he did that, but I'm not sure he did it correctly. At this point, I'm trying to decide if this thing is salvageable or if we need to just rebuild something similar to what they had before using whatever he had backed up. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
