sharepoint 2007 database - changes not saved?

Hi All

We had problems with the Sharepoint server, and we re-attached the database using the Windows Internal Database. However the information on the site is a year old. We have tried restoring from backup, but the contents are still old.

What is the issue here? I've done many upgrades and migration, never bumped into this issue before. Just to remind, I didnt do the migration for this particular issue, so Im trying to resolve it.

I've checked IIS, Admin Console, all look ok. Unsure where this problem lies?

Thanks.

am not sure if i got your question right... but if its this " you have restored new content db to the site but still see the old content "... make sure you make the old db offline .
look like you have two content databases attached to the site collection. you need to make sure one db is offline before other one kicks off.. you can put the database offline from central admin - Manage content db - click on db name - drop down to offline- save

Permission issue - had to give the right permission.
