Is there any way to revert changes I made on the gallery?

Hello everyone!

I recently made some changes to tags on my gallery, which included deleting some pretty important ones by accident in the last 24 hours. I have already created new/replacement tags and added them "manually" through the batch manager, but I have found this still "broke" the tag organization I had set up. To avoid going through 472 albums manually to manually re-add tags (or even the batch manager), I figured it would be easier to just "go back" to a previous version of the gallery before I deleted those tags.

The only problem is I don't see the option to in the gallery settings and can't seem to find documentation on this website or the greater forum. I may not be looking in the right places or using the correct keywords - my apologies if that is the case. I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction, or if this is even possible in the first place?

In case it should be noted, I do not have root access to my host. So, it it's possible to "revert" the changes but that is required, then I am definitely SOL

Allegedly people who use computers to maintain their data fall into two categories:
1. People who do backups
2. People who should do backups and eventually will start doing backups
I think that you've just advanced from the first category to the second one.

I assume that you browsed those discussions, didn't you?

BTW thank you very much for bringing this topic up. It helped me realize that my latest backup was one month old... Oh gosh!

The passive aggression was a little unnecessary -- everyone starts somewhere -- but thanks for the link. Those didn't come up in my search!

Yes, it was... My apologies!
I was venting my own frustration with 10 years of my digital photos lost because of misconfigured backups.
