I'm pretty handy with phpmyadmin so I created a new category with the same id but I can't find the messages...

The messages (if you haven't deleted them from the database) are stored in the table _kunena_messages. The message contents—the actual text of the messages—are stored in the table _kunena_messages_text.

Does that help?

Hello,

If you have created a new category the id of this category is different from old one, if you look in tables messages to check the id corresponding of old category. Like that you can edit the new category by setting the old ID.

I don't provide support by PM, because this can be useful for someone else.

If you have deleted the category in the backend "Kunena -> Categories", there is no way to go back. It deletes category along with messages. Without backup you can't restore your messages.
