To restore an existing backup, follow the steps below.
- Login to Plesk
- On main page, with your Website, click on Backup & Restore
If there is any backup available, it will be on the list.
You can also upload a backup you may have.
Or schedule a backup:
- You will now see an overview of the existing backups. A new backup is made every day at midnight.
- To restore a website backup, click on the date of the backup you want to restore.
- You can then choose Files or Databases.
In most cases, to restore a full website backup, you need to restore both the files and the databases.
If you don't need to restore/backup all of them, go to Files (left menu) to see a preview of each folder and then select the ones you need.
To restore a full backup, and therefore all files, click on the selected date, check everything and click Restore.
Before proceeding with the full backup, you will see a warning. Check here to delete files that are not in the backup, to restore the exact status of the backup date, and click Restore.
Click in Databases backup and follow the same steps.
In the backup log you can see when the backup has been fully restored or when it is still being processed. To do this, click on Log with restore operations.
You can also see an overview of all completed tasks.
