A colleague has asked me to take over hosting his website and has given me a ‘backup’ of his site. It looks like he has all the normal WP installation files, plus a folder called _bd_backup with a copy of htaccess plus one sql file. Am I correct that the sequence is to:
1. create a fresh WP install.
2. Load his backup over the top of it (FTP)
3. Edit the wpconfig file with the database setting I put in above.
I’m not sure that is correct, and I’m lost on the next steps.
Do I need to ensure I am using the same version of WP?
