Does WP_ALLOW_REPAIR cause a droplet to be restored?

WordPress Backups Ubuntu 16.04

I used WPALLOWREPAIR / repair.php because of a mysql crash and now my droplet was restored to a different state than it was. I have no idea to which backup it was restored too, or even if WPALLOWREPAIR was the one that restored it. Where can I get in-depth data about this?

The WPALLOWREPAIR constant, when used, activates the native WordPress feature to repair corrupted tables in the database.

It should not cause your droplet to be restored, it’s a WordPress constant used to repair tables.
