Deleted A Record By Mistake, How To I Find The One I Was Using Previously?


#1

I deleted my A record and I cannot remember what it is, is there any way to recover this?


#2

You can find the proper IP address at the provider where your site is hosted. They usually have their own complete set of DNS records.


#3

There’s also a chance you’ll find it on the dashboard under your Audit Log. It’s a link at the top of the Dashboard page. Look at the event where you deleted the record. It might show you what you deleted.

Thanks @sdayman. I found it. I am now getting “error establishing a database connection”. That’s why I tried to change the A record firs. Any idea what the issue might be?

Your app is probably trying to connect to a non-existent database server.

You most likely have to edit your database config file to use ‘localhost’ for the server instead of whatever is there now.
