Restore from data directory


Regarding restoring the db…….I had Influxdb running in a single instance in AWS and the system crashed, but I was able to save the data volumes,

however it looks like no backups were being created, but the data is still available. Is there a way to use the “backup restore”

utility with only the data directories being available?

I’ve tried to just change the data directory in influxdb.conf and then restarted, but after doing this, I could no longer login, so I

reverted the change…. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated……
