We recently published a post on our blog about how to backup WordPress using UpdraftPlus. In my opinion its the best backup plugin for WordPress and the premium version along with all add-ons are freely available to all Best WordPress Solutions customers.
cPanel is a popular control panel we offer for our shared hosting and virtual private server customers. We automatically backup all Word Press sites in our shared hosting plans using cPanel. We also provide automated backups to all of our customers who have a Maintenance Plan subscription. For these customers manually backing up their sites is not necessary. Other customers of ours who opted out of using our hosting solutions but are using other services we offer without the benefits of our automated backups can find this article useful in restoring their sites using cPanel.
Restore WordPress Using cPanel in 5 Steps
Login to your cPanel account
Navigate to your login page for cPanel. This is normally your domain name or IP address followed by the port :2083
Under the files section, click on the backup Wizard Icon
Click on the “Restore” button
Next, you need to select the component of your website that you would like to restore. Here we have chosen MySQL Databases. Your WordPress site’s database is what stores all of your content and settings
Next, click on Choose File and select the downloaded zip file from its storage location. Then click Upload.
Restore WordPress Using cPanel Conclusion
cPanel will now restore your database from backup.
If you also need to restore your WordPress site’s files (like your uploaded images), you can do that by following the same process for the Home Directory.
We thank all of our current customers. If you are not a current customer maybe we can convince you in subscribing to one of our WordPress hosting packages or WordPress maintenance plans.
