Database disaster (again)

Out of the blue MT ceased to function on the server where it had been happily hosted for well over a year, forcing a complete site relocation to another server, which was carried out with only one minor error - the loss of the mySQL database.

I had backed up the entire site in anticipation of disaster, and have now been working my way through the MT Disaster Recovery program as finely summarised here, but it is so fraught with trial and error that a rethink makes one wonder whether any of the ‘lost’ site deserves recuperation. In the meantime, the templates and stylesheet have been reinstalled and are at this very moment under test.
