Accidentally dropped the 'mysql database' in my database, how can I restore it? I am using cpanel server.

  • Not exactly a duplicate @akuzminsky. The other question is about dropping "a database," while this is appears to be about the mysql system database -- dropping it is a much more significant problem, since the server is now in a very unstable state, assuming it's still running at all (and it certainly will not restart, if stopped).

You will have to restore your databases from your backup otherwise there is no other way to retrieve your data.

  • Your answer is misleading. Downvoting it.
