To restore a PHPFox Neutron backup of your website, you will need two things – the files of the PHPFox Neutron installation and the database that you were using for it.
You need to move the backup of your PHPFox Neutron files to the exact location, where you wish to restore it. This can be achieved with the use of your favorite FTP client or directly via the File Manager service within your cPanel account. Choose carefully the directory, where you would like your PHPFox website to appear and make sure that you have removed all previous contents located there.
It is important to have an empty database that will be used to restore the backup of the one you were using.
You can create a new database and a user assigned to it via cPanel. Simply follow our MySQL Wizard tutorial for information on that.
Then, you need to log into your cPanel account. Locate the Database section and then click on the phpMyAdmin service.
Select the newly created database.
Click on the Import button at the top menu.
Select the backup dump file from your personal computer and then hit the Go button to initiate the import.
By completing both of the previous steps, you now have a location on your account, which contains all of the files and folders of your PHPFox Neutron website. You also have a database, which contains the backup of your PHPFox Neutron database. Now, it is time to configure them. You simply need to edit the the configuration file of your application and enter your new database details
To locate the name of your database, you can review the main PHPFox configuration file.
