A critical part of database management is being able to recover your data after corruption or accidental deletion has occurred.

In this scenario, you are a systems administrator for a company with a corporate website powered by Wordpress. The developer has just contacted you that some unspecified corruption in the database has occurred and now the site is down and the admin panel cannot be reached.

Your task will be to use the point-in-time restore capability of RDS automated snapshots to restore the database and bring the site back up.

NOTE: This lab may take up to 15 minutes to fully start due to the number of resources that need to be provisioned.
