Restore Content

  1. Self hosted blog-
    Had some problems and recently deleted and reinstalled blog.
    Before I did so I downloaded my WP blog folder using FTP app.
    I would like to restore original content- specifically posts, and pages.
    I've searched internet and what I can find isn't working-
    I've uploaded the wp-content folder but if I try to replace the new wp-config.php file the site becomes non functional. Also can't find original htaccess file which if I understand correctly is also needed.

    Is there a way to restore my content or must I go back to square one and do it all manually? That would be tragic.

    Thank you for any advice!
