Hi there - I've got a back-up of my server that I'm trying to retrieve some content I had in my CMS previously but I'm not sure where it is. Can someone let me know where the CMS content files are located? i.e the content that is entered into the WYSIWYG editor - does this save an html file somewhere? (or .SS/.php?)

Thanks in advance.

Hi jay_kay.

All the content entered into the editor is stored in your database. There are no files for that.
If you have uploaded any images etc., they are stored into your <root>/assets folder.

Hi Christian,

I was afraid that might be the case. Back to the drawing board I guess!

Thanks for your help though.
