How to Restore your WordPress Site from BackWPup
Have a backup file from WPBackWPup but don’t know what to do with it?
BackWPup is an excellent, free plugin that meets all the basic requirements for backing up your WordPress site. But it does NOT include a restore function! Yikes.
So what do you do when you need to restore from a BackWPup file? The short answer is: it depends on what is in your backup file. And that depends on how you setup your backup jobs. Do you need to start by installing WordPress? It depends. Do you need to extract your backup file to your desktop? It depends. Do you need to re-install your plugins? It depends.
This video class takes you step-by-step through restoring your website, no matter what kind of backup file you have. In fact, it includes four example restorations covering all scenarios, and a flowchart explaining which example is best for you.
