ok mate…thx for the suggestion :d

You should backup your files weekly to another droplet, by using rSync as example ;) Else you’ll still have a Single point of Failure.

Unless you purged the data (which wouldn’t be accidental), reinstalling MySQL and starting the service would get your site running again.

The data should still be there.

Sadly I remove the /var/lib/mysql folder :(

But it’s ok now coz I look for arround and have backup my droplet…so restore it make my database exist again. Next time i’ll be very carefull to delete anything. Thx for the reply mate :d

Go To your droplet and in Rebuild Droplet select ubuntu WordPress option and click on rebuild

Access your Droplet Dashboard and navigate to the Destroy tab. Below the first option of Destroy you will find an additional box to rebuild the droplet to a specific image, under the name Rebuild Droplet.

**Note from the documentation below: ** “This will rebuild your Droplet using the image specified and its original configuration parameters. The rebuild process will destroy all data currently on this Droplet, so back up anything you want to keep. Rebuilds are limited to base images and snapshots in the same OS family as the Droplet.”

Hope this helps!
