I had to restore my DigitalOcean back to a previous build. That’s a week old and naturally I have S3 backups so I thought It’d be an easy point and click and I’m back to at worst losing a days worth of data.
So, then I ran into an issue and the restore failed, I eventually stumbled upon this post:
So I downloaded the latest version of my backup, extracted the content. I unzipped dump.sql.gz and modified the content searching for all occurrences of:
enable_s3_uploads making sure the value is set to false.
The restore is successful, except for the fact that every single image in our forum is missing.
How do I fix this? I think i’m going to revert back to my week old backup. I’d rather miss a week of data then lose every image that was uploaded.
Any help would be appreciated.
