    Angry No FTP Access to MySQL Tables?

    I decided to take the move to WH4 since my site has been down for a week. My domain resolves now and I need to upload all the data from my backup. The majority of it is the MySQL database for my Wordpress install. In WH3 I could drill down through the 'var' directory to get to the tables (where the backups came from), but now I can't access that directory in WH4.

    Am I missing something or is this no longer accessible?

    This is no longer accessible. WH 4.0 is just basic shared hosting much like other companies you do not have the access you did with 3.0. MySQL is a bit different now also. Usernames and databases are all prefaced with your main username. ****... I had not thought this one through yet. Even if you have a backup of your database your going to have to alter it some. If you have the back up in an .sgl fashion then you could open it up in a plain text editor and manipulate it. Then use phpMyAdmin to import it.
