I made a big mistake tonight and accidentally nuked my forum in DO. So I cannot restore from a snapshot. I recreated a Discourse instance, but I cannot upload my backup through the web. It uploads up to about 17%, and then starts over, until it errors out with an error popup that says try again.
I tried following the command line restore, but it’s not working or I’m probably doing something incorrect. I would sincerely appreciate any help right now. I’m dead in the water.

I cannot thank you both enough for stepping up to the plate here. I did not realize I run that locally and not on the server. I got it back up and running. I would have been up all night with nothing to show for it if it wasn’t for you two. Thank you so very much!
