Restoring an MS SQL database
To restore from a backup, download the backup file:
- Go to the Website Cloud Backup dashboard.
- Click the Download Files button for the database you wish to restore.
You will then be taken to the MS SQL Create Download window:
Choose the backup date you would like to download. In the Tables list you can view all of the tables and objects you will be downloading.
Click the Download button and the database will be compressed in a zip file and downloaded to your computer.
To restore the database to your DiscountASP.NET SQL 2012/2014 database, you will need to decompress the zip file, then upload the backup file (ending in the extension .BAK) to your site root via FTP.
