how to find wordpress pages in cpanel

If you run multiple sites and you don’t have a domain name set to auto-renew, you need to remember to renew it, or make sure your reminder emails to renew get sent to an email you check.

Once your domain expires, you no longer have control of it on the web. It doesn’t delete your files from the server you had WP installed on.

So long as you haven’t deleted the WordPress database from your hosting account, you’ll find your WordPress pages and posts in your database.

The problem is finding the database if you haven’t saved the details.

Go to cPanel, and click on public-html or whichever name your root directory is. Others are httpdocs and www.

If you only have (or had) one website, you’ll only have one wp-config file in your public_html directory. Addon domains are stored in subdirectories.

Open the folder for the domain you want to find the pagees for, right-click on the wp-config.php file, select view and look for

/** The name of the database for WordPress */

define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘username_wrd#);

The DB_Name is the name of the database that has the pages for that domain.  Replace # with the number that shows in your config file.

Go back to cPanel, this time, go to the “databases” section and select “phpMyAdmin”.

On the left sidebar will be a list of all your databases. Click the one that the wp-config.php file is pointing to, then select the wp_posts option.

From there, you’ll be greeted with a table with all the pages and posts information, including the meta details.

You can edit or copy them from here.

Double-clicking a table cell in the post_content column opens up an expandable text box.

You can edit the content directly there, or copy and paste it all to a text file and use it to restore your page on a new domain.

You’ll even get access to drafts that never saw the light of the day.
