Topic : Trying to restore backup from different server / host

Posted By: laydownlarry on November 19, 2017, 2:48 am
Trying to restore a backup from my former host that went offline. I'm dropping it into the softaculous_backups folder, but nothing is showing up when I try to restore.

My username is the same -- but my directory is different (home2/username in backup vs home/username in new host). Does that matter?

Or what else should I try?
