Is it possible to overwrite your Worpress and Theme install directories with a clean version from 2 months prior, keeping the current database? I have possible malware on the install, and the last clean backup is from 2 months ago, but the databases are backed up weekly. I would prefer not to go back to a database 2 months ago, as too much was changed/added.
The WP version of the April backup was 3.0.1
Is it possible to copy the April files, update wordpress and the plugins, upload any missing images to the gallery and be back in business with the current database?
Where are the counters for the posts and images stored? Each image has a number that is consecutive and so are posts, tags, etc. Are tags and categories stored in the database or file on the server?
Trying to see what must be changed on the server files.
