1 click to restore in a hacked site

I would like to know how is posible the method " 1 click to restore" if i have no access to my site because it has been hacked or for problems in the database or whatever.

I have to create another site from scratch or there is another method?

    Hi wordev,

    Hope you're well?

    The easiest option would be to create a new install with a clean DB & files, then install snapshot & import the snapshot.

    However, you could download the snapshot zip file, then unzip it.

    Clean out your existing files in /wp-content/ etc (as long as you chose to backup files & plugins too)

    THen inside the zip, you will see lots of SQL files, & the /wp-content folder

    So you can manually upload the files to your server using FTP, and then making sure the DB is empty. You can then manually import each of the .sql files into the DB using phpmyadmin.

    Though it's probably a lot quicker & safer to reinstall wp, & then use the restore feature of snapshot.

    Hope this helps
