Support » Plugin: UpdraftPlus WordPress Backup Plugin » How To Restore Wiped Site

    I developed a WP site on my localhost. Today, I tried to upload to GoDaddy. Somehow, in the process, the site was destroyed. Now when I try to open the site, I get WP startup page.

    Luckily, I made a backup this morning and I can see the backup files on the computer.

    The question is, what is the best method to restore the site by using those files? Thanks for any suggestions.

    Hi,

    We recommend setting up WordPress and UpdraftPlus again. Then, upload the backup files via the Existing Backups tab. The backup will appear in the list ready to restore. Then simply follow the restoration wizard.

    We have a guide with further details available here:
