Hi All, I hope you can help. I had a custome permalink structure with Wordpress 2.7 . I changed it but now I need to change it back. I looked at the old url but for some reason can make the old one line up and work.

I have my blog backed up to my computer. What php file holds the old permalink structure I used?

Please help.

No PHP file holds the permalink structure. This is in your database. So that's the backup you need. There's not much that's unique to your blog that's in the PHP files (mostly just in the themes).

Generally, if you change it in the admin screen, it should update fine. You would have to change your manual links by hand of course.
