I had an issue with my MSM where it didnt allow me to "Submit" my entry and I have googled for the error and then I came across an answer which said to delete the "Pages" module. I did so and I didnt realize that I was going to hit hard by that step. Alfter I did that all my URLs got messed up.

I have around 1000 channel entries which basically make up my college website.

Is there anyway I can restore all the URLs..?? Please help me out with this.

I would recommend restoring the site from a backup. Your host provide should be able to help you gain access to the backups of the file system and of the database, if you don't have direct access yourself and/or you don't have a separate backup available.

  • Thanks for your response. So, if somehow I can get hold of the DB backup of lets say "yesterday".... can I get all the Urls back...??

    Your host should be able to do the actual DB restore for you so you won't have to do anything. If no, they'll most likely provide you with an SQL dump from which you can restore... best to make a backup of the current damaged DB first, then dump all tables, then import the backup.

    NOTE TOO: When you uninstall addons in EE, there is a great potential for data loss if that addon stores data in the DB. For example, uninstalling a field type will cause data loss if any fields use it.

    It should just be a normal database recovery, yes. You would just need to get a copy of your database timestamped before you made your major change - and import it into your database, thereby undoing the changes that you made (make sure a file backup is also part of what you restore).
