We tried to make LogicalDOC as intuitive as possible, but an advice is always welcome.

Restore Folder Marked as Deleted in MySQL Database

Fri Aug 31, 2018 10:42 am

After a recent system recovery, we have noticed that one of our Workspaces has gone missing. When I log into the 'logicaldoc' database in MySQL, I can see what I believe to be the Workspace in the ld_folder table, and it is marked as deleted. We have had no luck finding this Workspace in any user's Trash (possible noncompliance with my search request).

Question: Is it possible to undelete a Workspace and all of its subfolders & files by setting ld_deleted to 0 in the database, or will that damage the system?

Hi die7fox,
you should restore a Workspace using SQL statement on the database.
Currently it is not possible to restore it smoothly from the GUI.

First select al workspaces from the table ld_folder

Code: Select all

SELECT ld_id, ld_name, ld_deleted, ld_type FROM ld_folder WHERE ld_type = 1 ;

UPDATE ld_folder SET ld_deleted = 0 WHERE ld_id = <use_ld_id_from-before>;

Thanks. That's what I was hoping I could do. Will undeleting the workspace also undelete all of its contents?

No, this will just undelete the workspace folder,
then you should relay on the function from the GUI to restore the deleted sub-folders (if there are any)
Administration, Reports, Deleted folders
(right mouse click on the single folders)

But before doing that I kindly suggest you to restart LogicalDOC service

Thank you. After marking the workspace as active and restarting my logicaldoc services, I was able to recover my folders successfully.
