Can we recover lost msql database without having any backup or snapshot?

Is there backups maintained by digital ocean? What if an exitsing droplet is not configured for snapshots or backups and mysql database get deleted from ubuntu server?

It will be a life saver if I can have any solution for this problem.

Hey there @buzdy

So to answer the first part of the question no DigitalOcean does not keep backups of servers for you. You would need to have setup backups or have snapshot of use a service like ours SnapShooter.

As for the recover, I don’t want to get any hopes up as I would strong suspect it’s gone. However a very very last ditch attempt would be to boot into recovery mode, and use something like testdesk

But again I would not be very hopeful.
