Somehow my DO backups of my working were all corrupt – I had to revert from a backup and none of them would complete. Not looking for reason why now.
Using DO’s tools, I was able to boot a generic instance with the backup as a drive. I was able to go to the MySQL folder and download all the directories of all my databases. But, I can find no way to get them, or one of them, into a new instances database, which requires a .sql file to import.
Any bright ideas to get these directories into the form that I can import them please? Thank you.
