The MachineKey of a DotNetNuke website has been lost, which is very bad news for the user login capabilities. Luckily, this was a development site with only two users, so the downfall is minimal, but I need to get the site back up and running.
I think the only real option since there are no viable backups is to reinstall the site. However, I'm a bit worried about having to redo a lot of work. There were some menu items and content items created, which still work fine; as far as a skin goes, I believe it's using one of the default skins.
What would be the suggested course of action to restore the menu and content items after the reinstall? I'd like to minimize the amount of time required to restore the site and I'm hoping some clever database work can get me back up and running very quickly after the site is re-installed. I will do the users manually as that is negligible.
I have very little experience with DotNetNuke's database structure, but I'm very good at working with SQL databases, so if I could get some DotNetNuke-specific assistance, I should be able to work this out nicely. Thanks in advance for your help.
