Restart local site from the files

I’ll put the edit here at the top so you won’t have to read the rest.

I got it! The instructions in the post did nit say the the site needed to be started before opening the SSH. Once I did that everything worked great.

Lost a C: drive today and have had to reload everything and I’m beating myself up because I got lazy and didn’t do a backup of a site I am working on for the past 3 days and really don’t want to lose all that work.

I found a post about restoring a site from the files in the local directory but haven’t been able to get it to work. I’ve backup up everything the renamed the folder with the site files in it the created a new site with the same name as the original site. I then deleted those files and renamed the old file folder back to its original name. The final step appears to be to enter the new site’s SSH and enter :
myloader -p root -d /app/sql --overwrite-tables --database local
to recover the site’s SQL files.

When I do this I get an error message saying ‘myloader’ is not recognized as an internal or external command.

Am I missing something or have things changed with LBF so there is a new way to do this?

Super glad to hear starting the site before opening SSH worked out! Totally been there before :joy:. Feel free to reach out if you run into any other issues!
