[Plugin: Pressbackup] Can't restore database Error: "Wrong file type: application/octet-st

    Hi

    Trying to restore a whole backup does nothing after trying to load. File is 94MB so not sure if that is the issue although it is through dropbox.

    So I tried to restore just the database which is 7.4MB but I am getting the following error when trying to : Wrong file type: application/octet-stream

    Please advise.

    Thanks

    Hi J,

    Are you restoring the file directly from Dropbox? or are you using the upload option?

    regards

    I have tried both.

    After it didn’t work I had gone directly into the phpMyAdmin and restored the database there. That worked.
