I have a client using my login and I believe he accidently deleted the categories. My question is, is there no way that I can import it from the db or are they now gone?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I don’t believe there is a way to undelete a category per se, but one way to get back old information is to 1) restore to an earlier database.  (You DID back it up right before you went live, right?) or, if worse comes to worse, ask your hosting provider to restore yesterday’s (or whatever previous backup point) disk image.  That is about all you can do from what I understand.

You might want to review the permissions you are giving to your client, just to save them from themself, if you know what I mean.  They know not what they do sometimes!

GL!
