Restoring backups
Posted by David, Last modified by Ashley L on 19 November 2019 05:54 PM

You can use the Backup Menu to restore a Home, MySQL, filter, or alias backup. To do this, you must have that backup on the computer that you are accessing cPanel from.

 Here are the following steps to restore backups:

  1. To access the Backup Menu, click on the icon above the words "Backup" on the main screen of your cPanel interface
  2. Click on the "Choose" button below the backup type you wish to restore
  3. Once you have selected the file you wish to restore, click on "Upload"  

Troubleshooting: The archive or file you are uploading must match the way it was downloaded. For example: if the archive was a .tar.gz when you downloaded it, it must be a .tar.gz file when you restore it. 

Please note that Fused Network has nightly backups that you can also request that we restore, simply contact us.
