Ability to download files or databases from the daily backups

Vihren Benev shared this idea 1 year ago

As a website owner and developer I would like to have the ability to download single files, whole backup or particular database backup from any of the daily backups in the sPanel. Often I need older version of something to test or check. Now the only option is to restore it to the live production environment which sometimes is not a good idea.

Will this work if we give you an option to restore the data to a location/path specified by you during the restore e.g. instead of restoring the database user_db1 to the original one, restore it to the database user_devdb or instead of restoring the files to the original location in /home/user/public_html, restore them to /home/user/backup-template?


For sure this will do the trick. However, it would be much better, while we browse the backup, besides the current option "restore selected" to have in addition: "restore to" (as you suggested) and "download selected".


We are starting to work on this feature request.


This is now available in the latest version of SPanel which will be updated to all servers in the next 7 days.
