       c. Click on restore

       d. Please note that in order to restore a database, it must exist on your system with the same user as updated with us. If it doesn’t exist please create a dummy database on your platform and create a profile of that database with us using add database feature. In this case you would need to migrate the old database to the new one. Please check the FAQ on how to migrate the database. If you do not see the feature to migrate database please contact your hosting provider to enable it.

2. Manual restore via download feature. Please follow the steps below:

  1. Sign in to your account and go to your dashboard.
