I backed up my website using Akeeba backup and downloaded the jpa file. I now need to restore that backup. The backup is not displayed amongst the files in the file manager within Akeeba but thankfully I have the downloaded file. But I do not know how to use this file to restore. There is no option within the Akeeba interface to upload the jpa file. How do i do it?? Any help would be great. Also I am using Joomla 3
You need do this steps:
- Upload your .jpa file;
- Upload the file kickstart.php from Akeeba site in same directory .jpa file. https://www.akeebabackup.com/products/akeeba-kickstart.html
- Run the file www.yoursite.com/kickstart.php
- Follow steps from restore process.
I hope this helps.
