Note: Restoring a backup will also restore the WP-Admin password to the Admin password that is listed in the control panel under Website details, if the password was previously changed.
Navigate to the website you want to restore a previous version (backup file) of, and then on the left sub-menu click on Backups then click Restore Backup.
You can choose a backup from the same website, or from a different website that you own. You can even choose backups from deleted websites; remote backups are kept for up to 30 days after a website is deleted.
Check the box to restore a remote backup. Leave the box unchecked if you want to restore a local backup.
- The timestamp of all backups are in your local time zone.
Find the backup file you want to restore and select it.
Click Continue and wait for the process to finish.
NEW: Partial Restore
Restore a backup partially by selectively including, or excluding files and database.
In the example above, we restore only the folders wp-content/uploads and wp-content/plugins along with the database. No other files will be restored.
You can also choose to restore everything except certain folders, and if you do not want to restore the database, click the checkbox next to Do not restore database.
