Failure when adding new post or pages

I recently had to back up and restore my multistage. When i restore my site everything works fine however i cannot add new post or pages.

the message I’m receiving is “Are you sure you want to do this? Try again.”

I have done the following to fix:

1. Deactivate all plugin

2. Change themes

3. followed the instruction here from


4. and i have attempted the restore in many ways.

I believe it has something to do with my tables but I’m not entirely sure.

I really need help on this one.

    ok i spoke too soon.

    I ended up using the instructions in the link that I posted. I did use a plugin to do the restore. it created two sets up tables. one with the new prefix assigned and one with the old prefix. I deleted one set.

    then i had to change all the site tables for to AUTO_INCREMENT. I dont know why i had to do this or how it got switched. the reason i thought i wasnt working is because i only changed my main site tables and not my subdomains. I had to change them all.

    maybe this will help someone in the future.

    thanks for the quick response.

    my success was short lived. while i was able to create the post, i was not able to view the page.

    i tried to use your live support but since i used a 3rd party plugin to perform the back up, your staff members have refused to help in any way.

    thank you for your quick response.
