Need the text from a php wordpress page

I downloaded a clients wordpress folder to my computer, now they want the text that was on the page. I have tried to upload the page again, but the file I got from downloading is so big and confusing I cannot seem to find what I need to upload it again. Iv created a local server and installed wordpress on it, and tried to upload the file with no luck. Is there any way I can find the text that was on the page before I downloaded? I just need the text and this is driving me mad. Thanks

    Try the Wayback Machine. If the site was ever archived, you should definitely be able to pull at least the static text from it. I have used this to go back and take screenshots of clients' old site designs, and to pull content that I missed as well.
