Recover a deleted channel

Hello everybody,

a colleague accidentally deleted a channel, is there any way to recover it?

Thanks in advance

First, your version of Rocket is way out of date and totally unsupported.

It doesn’t even appear here…

Next your OS went EOL in July 2018

Please, upgrade.

As far as recovering your channel I am not sure if the data is still in Mongo and just marked deleted - you need to look.

Alternatively restore from your backup which you run every day?
