Problems migrating to a new host

  1. asws

    I recently had to move a client website to a new host server due to an unfortunate Apache exploit. I reinstalled wordpress and all associated plugins as a precaution. The database was also migrated once it was inspected for any injected code. After the move was complete, I lost the two forms that existed on the site. Nothing shows up within the GF backend except to start a new form, a quick review of the database shows there are GF entries and, hopefully, form data. Iʻd like advice on how to proceed if possible.

    - The domain did not change, which it seems can effect serialized data
    - Now running 1.7.2
    - Tried the metadata plugin, but the menu will not show a form to troubleshoot

    Can the forms be rebuild from the wp database or core files?
    Can the existing user data be acquired regardless of the form?
    If the forms are reinstalled, will the entries return as well?

    There is a chance I can export the forms from a staging server, but the user data is important to recollect. Any suggestions or help is greatly appreciated.
