How to reinstall & connect to previous bbpress database
Hi. I installed bbpress 2 years ago and then removed all the program files via FTP after all the php files got hacked, but I just noticed that the database files are still there. I would like to reinstall bbpress and reconnect to that database to preserve the old posts.
I have uploaded the latest bbpress install files to my site and can access the install screen http://myplasticfreelife.com/discuss/install.php. But when I enter the database information, I get the error “There was a problem connecting to the database you specified. Please check the settings, then try again.”
Is there a workaround? Is it having a problem because the bbpress tables already exist? Is there a way to reconnect?
