how do I restore root user?
I made my droplet, then i work on it two months. today I logged in as root user to delete all files from some folder.
i move to this folder:
then i paste this command to remove files :
rm * -r
i thought that it was not work so i did it again and again, then i got error :
/bin/rm not found ( or something like this )
so i turned off my droplet to restore from backup. Unfortunately one thing that i saw in “images” page is : “You currently have no backups” - I did not turn on backups !!!
then i turned on my droplet and now i do not have access via ssh or ftp. I don’t set autostart for mysql or ftp or nothing.
one thing i wan’t to recover is redmine database. Did anyone have some idea how to get database ?
droplet info :
Disk New York 3
Ubuntu 14.04 x64 vmlinuz-3.13.0-37-generic
sorry for my english
