    Hey y'all!
    I had Godaddy for a year and hated it, a couple visitors and the site lagged like crazy, so I got another hosting (cheaper, better and more ram).
    Anyway, so some days in advance I went into Cpanel, compressed and downloaded the 2 sites needed to move.
    But the thing is, I did not download the MySQL...
    I just spoke with customer support and they wanted $150 AND the cost for hosting to "save" my sites (ROFL).
    Am I fucked and I need to re-create the sites and add the content manualy now or is there an easier way?

    Best regards
    Lego

    They can just get a backup for you but they will ask alot of money because you will HAVE to get it back.. had it before and it sucks

    You mean you closed the account and forgot to download the database?

    You could have easily downloaded the database from your cPanel. As your account is now closed and you don't have access to cPanel, it depends on how much you value the website. $150.00 is exorbitant.

    If you did full backup than you should have database in folder you download, but if you only compress files in file manager than say goodbye to your database.

    Did you try to find these articles on archive.org?
