- Selecting a restore point for your desired application
- The restoration process
Once you have configured the backup for your server and the first backup has been taken, you can easily restore your application. Just follow these simple steps.
Step 1: Go to Application Management
Log into the Cloudways Platform with your credentials. Click on Applications in the top menu bar and then select your target application from the list.
Step 2: Choose Restore Point
- Under the Application Management area, click on the Restore section.
- From the drop-down, choose the restore point to restore from (more or less restore points will appear depending on the number of backups that you have taken).
- Click on Restore Application Now to begin the restore of your application.
Note: Please make sure that you have sufficient disk space before proceeding with the Restore operation. We recommend at least 2.5x space for Application data. For instance, if your current Application data is 100MB, we recommend you have at least 250MB of free disk space for the Restore operation.
Step 3: Restore Process
Once the restore process starts, the total restore time will depend on the size (files and database) of your application.
Step 4: Application Successfully Restored
Once the restore process has been completed, you will get a notification in a message box (in the top right corner as shown below).
That’s it. You have now learned how to restore an application.
