This guide explains how to restore your site from either one of the nightly backups or a manual backup you may have taken for your website.


1. First go to the website dashboard for the site you would like to restore.

2. From the website dashboard, click on Backups in the left hand pane

3. You will then be presented with a list of backups that you can restore from. To restore a site click on the Restore button on the right hand side of the page.

Note: In this example we are restoring a manually created backup called "Snapshot before theme change"

3. Click the Continue button

4. Select from the options for what you would like to restore. You can restore just the files, just the database or both at the same time depending on your needs

5. A final box will ask you if you want to proceed with the restore. Click Confirm to start the restore

Note: Large sites make take some time to restore.


That's it, you have now restored a copy of your site from the backups. Please see our other guides on the Backups feature in STORM to learn more:
