Field Type Recovery from Backup

  • Apologies if this has already been answered, but a search found no results.

    I am trying to recover a ‘Field Type’ value for a custom field group.

    Does anybody know please where this option is stored?

  • Hi @eprimo

    All values are saved into the wp_postmeta table, so if you have a backup, you can simply find the rows where the meta_key = the ACF field name.

    Also, most post types have revisions and ACF will have saved it’s values into these revisions. Perhaps you can simply revert a post back to an older revision to find it’s values?


  • Thank you for your help.
