From the new page select the checkbox called Create Backup and click on Create Backup button. It will take some time upon your site size. If your site is large than you may take a custom backup. For example, if your site have some video file of about more than 1 GB then it may take a bit more time to create a backup. To reduce the backup size and required time just exclude those video files from backup.

After a successful backup you will be redirected to a page that says Backup Successful! You can see a backup url that you can use to restore your site.

Step 3: Restore from backup

You can Restore from backup in two ways.

  • From the zip file given in the table
  • From the backup url address

 

⇒ Restore backup from table’s zip file

To restore backup from the zip file shown in the table just tick the checkbox called Restore Backup. Then select the checkbox field I AGREE and finally click on Restore Backup button.  A popup message will appear asking restore permission. Allow the permission. Restoring the backup may take some time upon your backup size.

⇒ Restore from the backup link

Restore from respected backup link is alike the previously described process. To restore from the respected backup link just copy the backup link url and paste it in box called Restore from URL. You can get the link from the tables column named log. Right click on that and copy that link address (Here I’m using chrome. So screenshot may changes upon your browser or browser version)
