Remote backup
files contains the database for your website and a .txt file with a link to download all the WordPress files.

Local backups contain all files (database and WordPress files).




Create the download link for your backup

Before you can download your desired backup, you must generate a download link for that backup. To do that, navigate to the Backup list and click on the website you want to download a backup for.

Next to the backup, click the button Get Download Link to generate the link. 

  • The timestamp of all backups are in your local time zone.

Click on the link to start the download.


Extract the backup

Once you have downloaded the backup, extract the file and open the folder, inside you will find the database for your website and another folder named wordpress.

The wordpress folder will contain a TEMPLIO_README.txt (if you have downloaded a remote backup) file with a link that is used to download all the WordPress files.

  • The first link is a curl link that can be used with the Terminal app. 
  • The second link is a link that can be pasted in a browser. 

Choose your preferred downloading method and download the file that contains all the WordPress files of your backup. When you have done that, extract the downloaded file called archive.tar to access your WordPress files.
