Oh snap I can't even get the story straight! I didn't restore the wrong one. But CoffeeCup's default setup after reinstalling it was simply pointing the the wrong path on the server where a directory did actually exist but not the live one. That's why she was getting a "successful update" message but yet not changes the live files. A root copy was being updated.
It's done and so am I.
