Can't Restore DB


#1

I can’t restore my DB, All i got is a message like "Your database “XXXXX” will have its backups restored within the next 5-10 minutes!

Phew! Crisis AVERTED, eh? "

But i have tried to restore like 3 times, nothing interesting happens. Please help.

We always suggest ppl to back up DB by themselves.

Maybe your backed up one is already out of date :frowning:

I know you can restore your site from snapshot

MySQL database is on a different server. I have no idea how to restore it if Restore MySQL is not working.

Which restore option did you use? There are 4 or so choices.
And did it offer a list of dates and times of previous backups?

If all else fails, submit a ticket to Support asking them to do the restore. Let them which know which method and date to use.
