There are two ways of recovering your site using BlagVault:

Step 1: Go to the BlogVault website and log in using your email ID. 

Step 2: On the BlogVault site listing page, select the website in which you want to perform the Restore operation or you want to Recover.


Step 3: It'll take you to the Site Detail page. On this page, select the Restore option from the Backup section. 


Step 4: Here, you can select the Backup Version you want to restore. By default, the latest version is selected. 

Select the Files & Tables if you want to do a Partial Restore. By default, we will do a complete Restoration of the website. Click Continue & the Restore Process will Begin

Step 5: You will be redirected to the Restore Page from where you can track the restore process.


NOTE: In-case our Systems are not able to contact the BlogVault plugin on the site, We will do the restore via FTP.

The Process will change from STEP 4 in-case of FTP Restore

Step 4: Once you click on Restore, you are taken to the FTP details form that requires you to fill up the following details:

  • Your FTP Host or Server name

  • The FTP type of your hosting service (FTP, SFTP, or FTPS)

  • Your FTP username

  • Your FTP password

These credentials allow BlogVault to access the details of the location to which your files need to be transferred and automatically restore your site.

Once you are done filling up these details, select where WordPress is installed and click on Continue to Start the Restoration.

Note: If you are using your hosting provider’s cPanel, this would typically be the webroot directory i.e. /public_html. Another way to identify the location is to look for WordPress files such as wp-admin, wp-content, etc. In case you select the wrong folder, BlogVault immediately alerts you of an error and doesn’t continue the process so you can not damage your website.
