[LON-CAPA-admin] Recovering deleted discussion?

No problem, deleted discussion items are just marked as "deleted," they are not really toast.

The interface does not allow to make these items visible again, you would need to pull them out of the db-file. I have some scripts that could be modified to do this, if it's needed. Just let me know.

I'm not sure at this time whether it would be worthwhile to restore the entire system to a new machine in order to get at the discussions and I'm not sure whether doing so would help anyway. Can anyone comment on that possibility?
