    BackWPup never had a restore option (afaik). Normally you restore a database by using the mysql client or a tool like PHPMyAdmin.

    With mysql you could do the following:

    - extract the archive that has been created by BackWPup (contains all files in your backed up WP directory)
    - look for a file with a .sql extension (contains a dump of your WP MySQL database)
    - use mysql (on the host that hold your databse) to restore your database like this:

    cat <whatever.sql> | mysql -h localhost -u <wp_db_username> -p<wp_db_password> <wp_db_name>

    Replace the words in <> with your .sql-file/username/password/database-name

    Yep when I had to do a restore I had to download and extract the most recent backup and then just overwrite the files (in my case - your process might be different).
