The backups of all databases are located in "/var/backupmysql/", so if you need one, you will have to check this directory. In the restore directory a ".sql" file will be generated for each of the databases you restore, but you will have to dump the content of that sql file to your database, this is not done automatically.

The backups of all email are located in "/var/spool/postfix/postfix/busties/". In this directory you will find a folder for each mail domain and, within them, a folder for each mail account, so you can choose to restore all the mail, a complete domain or a single account.

In the following page you will see a summary of the directories to restore, the date of origin and the location where the files will be restored:

You must take into account that the copies are made once a day and from 01:00 hours.

To start the restore process, just scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the Start recovery button.

In a matter of minutes, you will find the restored data in the directory shown in the last step, which you can access in the usual way via FTP or SSH. You can move or copy the recovered files, but you will have to keep the users and permissions of them for everything to work correctly.

Remember that you have the web database manager "phpMyAdmin" to perform any import, as well as other tasks. The access address is the following:

https://IP_de_tu_cloud/phpmyadmin

The access credentials to phpMyAdmin correspond to the username and password of your database.
