How to recover a deleted local site

Issue Summary

I deleted a site by accident and can’t recover it.

I just deleted it by mistake but did not confirm it in the system, so I recovered the file from the bin and passed it to Local Sites files (including the sql file).

I followed instructions I found in a FAQ from 2017 from clay (How can I restore a site from a Local site folder? - Local Classic FAQs - Local Community):

  1. I renamed the folder as “backup-pruebalicencia2”
  2. I created a new site called “pruebalicencia2”
  3. I deleted the new folder created and renamed the “backup-pruebalicencia2” to “pruebalicencia2” again
  4. Then when I go to the site in Local and do right click, I don’t have the option of “Open Site SSH”, but Open shell, and when I run the myloader -p root -d /app/sql --overwrite-tables --database local it says “myloader: command not found”

And off course then the site is like brand new and it doesn’t recognize all info I uploaded before.

Hope you can help me out
