Database Restore - Download Zip File

If you need to restore, you can stay calm knowing that CodeGuard has your back. Simply restore your database using our zip restore feature and have a zip-a-dee-doo-dah day!

For a zip restore, CodeGuard prepares a zip file of your backup for you to download and manually replace files. Watch the video tutorial below!

Reasons to Download a Zip File of Your Backup

  1. You need to restore your database.
  2. You are switching servers or host providers and need the zip file to migrate.
  3. You are removing the database from your account and want to keep a backup just in case.
  4. You want to confirm that everything is being backed up.

Important Notes and Considerations

  • Downloading a zip file usually takes ~15 minutes but will vary depending on the size of your backup.
  • The file included in your zip will be a .sql file containing your database.
  • To restore, simply replace your current files with the files from the zip download. We usually recommend using phpMyAdmin for this.

Video Tutorial – Database Restore (Automatic)

cooler than being cool

What’s cooler than CodeGuard automatically backing up your websites and databases every day? Automatically restoring your database(s)!

 

This video is a walk-through of how to restore your database using our automatic restore feature.

 Important Notes and Considerations

  • You cannot initiate a restore while a backup is in progress.
  • Restores will take longer than a backup because a backup is actually performed before your site is restored.
  • Restores typically take between 25 to 45 minutes to complete.
  • CodeGuard will notify you via email when the restore is complete.
