I needed to restore my droplet from a snapshot after a problem. But now my WordPress database seems to be inaccessible or missing. Doesn’t restore from snapshot restore all data and files?

One cause might the change of the IP address. Check the mysql configuration file.

sudo nano /etc/mysql/my.cnf

Scroll down to "bind-address = ", and update the IP number with the new IP of your droplet.

bind-address        = XX.XXX.XXX.XX

Save the changes of the file and do restart.

sudo service mysql restart
