    Hi Michael,
    can you recommend the most easy way to restore a back up to a new host?

    My friend was hosting my site but now I want to get my own godaddy account and host it myself. So I got your backup and it is currently backing up at 180%. I'm new to this so a brief instruction on how to restore would be helpful.

    Then, I'm wondering if I should just FTP all the files to Godaddy or do I create a new wordpress site, upload your plugin and restore from there?

    To restore you current site you should:

    1. FTP all the files from Dropbox to your new server
    2. Execute the SQL dump files

    Here is a tutorial I wrote some time ago. It may be dated these days as the net moves quickly so your milage may vary.


    As soon as I updated the Dropbox PHP API I am planning to add a restore feature.
