You would need to post some more info, like what happened to the site/server before your attempted the upgrade, which you shouldnt have done?

Did you verify the users arent in the "user" table in the database via phpmyadmin?

If they arent in the table while viewing the database, then you have but one option, to restore your site from a backup before the issue happened.

Sorry, but you need a file ending in .sql, which would be a dump / backup of your database, the php / xml files are of no help to you.

An upgrade can not bring back lost/deleted data. That being said, what happened? How were your members deleted?

Do you have a backup of the database? If you don''t then try to ask your host about it. Most hosts make regular backups of the db in their servers.
