UpdraftPlus Backup and Restoration for WordPress

    I am in a bad situation! My vps host just went down and has been down from the past two days. I have all my sites down as a consequence.

    However, the good news is I have updraftplus backup in Google Drive. How can I get these files and restore it if I am going to change my VPS host?

    The files seem to be split, and Is there an easy way, I can point Updraftplus plugin on the new site to pick up the backup and restore from Google Drive?

    Hi loghash,

    If the new hosting will use the same URLs as the old hosting, then you just:

    1) Install a new WordPress install, and install UpdraftPlus.
    2) On the UpdraftPlus settings page, press 'Restore', and click on the link to drag-drop your backup in. Make sure you drag and drop them all (plugins, themes, uploads, others, database).
    3) Click on the second 'Restore' button.

    Wow David, Thanks for the quick reply! Appreciate it! Can I drag-drop the split files as they are?

    Thank You
    Best Regards

    Yes.

    Just make sure your new hosting has enough resources and doesn't time-out - if it does then you may need to restore some bits by hand (i.e. unzip on your computer and upload via FTP).

    Trying to restore because the manual update for wordpress didn't work. Website is now a white page. How do i restore? I have the zip files but the db file asks for an extension to unzip it. what should that be? the other zip files unzipped no problem.

    Hi,

    You're doing a manual restore of the database, through phpMyAdmin?

    In that case, no need to de-compress the db.gz file. phpMyAdmin accepts them compressed without problems (and they upload quicker that way too).

    Please start your own topic in future - as per the WordPress forum welcome guidelines: http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome
