    i’d like to restore a 2 years old WP backup on localhost. How can i figure out which WP version has been used back then? I figure it might cause trouble using the latest install with a database this old.

  • Unzip the backup and look at the wp-include/version.php file if there are files included in the backup.

    If only the database is included, there should be a value in the options table for “db_version”. At https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Versions you can check which WordPress version this value corresponds to.

    Step 1: Go to Backups tool. Access your hosting account and select your website. You’ll see an option of “Backups” in the menu list. …
    Step 2: Select backup version to restore. Now, you need to select the backup version that you want to restore and proceed.
