I mistakenly deleted a WordPress database. Fortunately I realized my error before the recycle bin got purged, and was able to restore it. The restore was apparently successful — it appears in my list of databases, and shows a size of 1.6MB. However the WordPress site is unable to connect to it.
I assume I need to make some repairs via phpMyAdmin, but I don’t see a hostname listed for this site. Do I simply create a new hostname and link them up somehow, or is it possible (and safer?) to restore the old one?
Also I notice that the restored database has a “_1” suffix. I don’t recall whether that was its original name or if the restoration process automatically renames it to avoid overwrites.
