UpdraftPlus Backup and Restoration for WordPress
[resolved] Assistance with Restore (4 posts)

    Hi I used your Plugin to back up my WordPress site before I transferred it over to a MultiSite WordPress installation. Needless to say, the MultiSite installation completely screwed up my wordpress site so I need to reinstall and start from scratch.

    I have the back up files (sent via email) however, I am not sure how to restore it now as the databases don't show in the PlugIn history and the Restore button is greyed out. I'm more interested in the SQL back up which is encrypted!

    Please help

    Hi Clare,

    Do you have a record of your encryption phrase, that you used to create the database backup?

    I most certainly do. I just need to get it back so that I can either restore it or import it into SQL. I had another back up from another plugin but they don't support restores!!! Go figure that one!! So yours is the only back up I have :0/

    Hi Clare,

    There's an entry in the FAQ about how to decrypt the database:
    "I encrypted my database - how do I decrypt it?" - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/updraftplus/faq/
