If a MySQL database was removed, subsequent restoration of the database from a backup repository would fail with the following error: 

“Error: dbbackup failed: Unable to restore database 'db_name' ERROR 1008 (HY000) at line 1: Can't drop database 'db_name'; database doesn't exist”.


Create a database with the same name and then retry restoration.
