I have a bit of a problem. My client is running a Joomla 1.0 site and some content (text) was lost. There was no backup configured of the MySQL database. The content was lost approx. around the 16:th of December 2012. I tried finding the old site by using the Web Archive, but no cigar. The site is not even indexed.
I tried to retrieve it via Google cache instead. The cached page itself didn't have the content, but the preview screenshot of the website had the old content. I wrote everything I could read off the screenshot. However, there was content below the screenshot that could not be retrieved.
Here is what I typed into Google Search to find the old page:
site:gerami.se previous ass
Ass = assignments for those wondering ;)
I would really like to get the rest of the text that was below the screenshot when it was taken.
P.S: Whether this thread gets a solution or not, the moral of the story is still the same: Backup is your friend!
