Hey friend,

To recover a database you have a couple of potential options.

  1. Restore from a backup that you have. You can use the command-line to restore a MySQL database using this guide:

  2. Use DigitalOcean backups/snapshots to restore. Note that this will restore the entire droplet, not just your database, and will only be available if you had opted into backups or taken a snapshot.
