I am importing a snapshot from another site, for the purposes of syncing the two.
The source site is beta.mysite.com (I'll call it "beta" from here on), and the destination is temp.mysite.com (I'll call it "temp":wink:.
Beta has a server problem, and Temp is a few-days-old backup of beta (from before the server problem started). Some post/page content edits were made on Beta after the backup was made, so now I need Temp to be synced with Beta.....and after that, we'll be taking down Beta and renaming Temp so it will become the Beta site.
(I will be doing a full serialized search/replace on Temp before going live with it, so all the internal links will be properly fixed up.)
I ran a Snapshot Pro backup on Beta, and uploaded the resulting zip file to the Temp server. Then I went to Temp, and used the "Import" functionality to import the zip file. It now shows up under Snapshots >> All Snapshots.
So far, so good. But.....
Now, according to this article:
Find your snapshot listed, then hover over the title and select the restore link. ...
Next, you should be redirected to the archive page for all the backups for the snapshot profile you chose.
So I click on the "restore" link, but this is what I see:
There is no restore link when I hover on resources.zip -- only a "delete" link. But I can click on the "Edit Item" button at the top of the page, and it opens up this screen:
I understand the first part, in red letters: Since this backup is from a different site, it doesn't "match" this one. So I select the corresponding subsite of my multisite network that I want to restore this backup to. That part is fine.
But as I scroll further down this page, I see that none of the boxes for "tables to include" are checked.
I don't recall exactly which boxes I checked originally when I created the backup, so what do I do here? What happens if I click the wrong ones, or leave something unchecked?
Basically the whole rest of the page is options I would see when creating a NEW backup, and I'm just not sure how this will affect the existing backup file (if at all). Maybe these settings are just for future backups that potentially will be created with this snapshot?
Just looking for some direction here, so I don't break anything. :slight_smile:
