I created a site for a customer a couple of years back in Joomla, and kept an xcloner back-up. He then let his hosting expire and found himself more engrossed with another project.
He now wants his site restored – the old site was on joomla 2.5, but I figured if I could restore it locally I could see what was salvagable from the css styling of the new site in Joomla 3, but I am going round and round in circles trying to find out how to do this.
I am first and formost a graphic designer, I'm fine with joomla and css, I get a little lost on the more 'computer oriented aspects' – like how am I to use ftp on a local host and I don't have a XCloner.php file or a TAR.php cos they were all deleted from the original server.
