Blog Bug Report + Backup Request
Hello. I ran into a nasty bug with Perch Blog today. I created a new blog post, call it 'Blog #2'. I clicked 'create draft' to save it. I then went to the list of blog posts. Blog #2 was there, but had saved the contents of a pre-existing Blog #1, instead of the new information I'd just typed in. So it seemed that there were two duplicate posts, Blog #1 and Blog #2, both looking exactly the same. I therefore decided to delete Blog #2 and start again. However, after doing that, BOTH Blog #1 and Blog #2 had been deleted. That's a disaster - Blog #1 had taken a lot of time to create, and now it's gone.
So, that's the bug report. The request is: how can I restore the blog post? My understanding is that the data will be saved in the Perch database. And I have a backup on my server running, so I would hope I could restore the old database (i.e. the database before deleting Blog #1). Where is this database, in terms of file location on the server? (I am simply asking for the default location of the perch database, as I have not made any custom changes to this.) Thanks.
