How do I restore a database backup?

Within your cPanel for your website hosting product you have the ability to restore your own databases from backups.

To view the backups available to you first log into cPanel and then in the files section click on the "R1Soft Restore Backups" icon as below

R1Soft Icon

You will now see a list of all the available backup points as below

To restore a database from a backup click the folder icon on the corresponding line db

You will now see the list of databases associated with your cPanel account, choose the database you require restoring and click "Restore Selected"

The database will immediately begin restoring

All being well you should see

successfuly restored!

You have now restored your database.
