DBC Backup 2
[resolved] Question about restoring backups (5 posts)

    I've been reading about this plugin but I see NOTHING mentioning restoring from backups and how that process works. Is there any information I can read on whether or not backups can be restored from within DBC Backup 2? Could you possibly post a screen shot of the restore options?

    Thanks!

    Hi Tomdkat

    -- in answer to your question -- if your website was down, how would you restore it?

    With the backup of your WordPress database that you create with DBC Backup 2 you can restore your site using PHPMyAdmin, SQLYog, Sequel Pro or any other MySQL tool.

    A key feature of DBC Backup 2 is that the backup is stored on your webserver - so if something goes wrong with the site, you can easily restore from a recent backup. As most Internet Web Hosts backup their servers, this means your WordPress DBC Backup file is backed up too!

    Hope that helps

    Thanks for the info. I was mainly asking if DBC Backup 2 provided a restore facility and it appears it doesn't.

    Thanks!

    Happy New Year!

    The main function of the plugin is the backup.

    If your website is not functioning -- then there is no point of a restore function as that wouldnt be accessible either :)

    hope that helps

    I actually disagree. :) Other backup applications and some WordPress plugins for backing things up offer built-in restore functions. If my site actually did crash, I could either restore all of it from a backup or I could get WordPress, itself, up and running and restore the database from whatever tool I used to generate the backup. Given how easy it is to install WordPress plugins, I would be able to get WordPress installed, get the backup plugin installed, and then be ready to restore the database through the backup plugin in a fairly short amount of time.

    DBC Backup 2 looked like a great backup solution for me, but I wanted to clarify the retore issue before installing it. I'm not saying you NEED to add a restore function, or anything, but was simply ASKING if one existed since the documentation about DBC Backup 2 didn't mention anything about a restore function (either existing or not existing) at all.

    Take care!
