How to Restore a Backup

To restore a backup; open the My Backups tab, then click the Restore this Backup button.

The restore tool returns the install to the state that the files and database tables where in in when the backup was created. This will overwrite any files, directories, and database tables currently using the original location of the backup, though nothing will be deleted.

Tip: While it is not necessary to uninstall prior to initiating a restore, it can be advisable when the backup is greatly different than the current state of the install or if errors occur during the restore process.


The "Files & Directories" and "Database & Tables" sections confirm the files, directories, and database tables that will be restored.

Items listed in red will overwrite items with the same name currently residing at the destination. This is a warning rather than an error as overwriting existing content is a common use of the restore tool (for example, to return to an earlier version of the current application).


Installatron has all the information it needs to perform the restore. Press the Restore button begin the restore process.

You will be redirected to the "My Applications" tab while the restore executes in the background. Feel free to navigate away from Installatron while the restore completes.

Upon completion, you can begin using your newly restored application from the "My Applications" tab.
