Restore a Cloud from a Backup

Restoring a Cloud from one of its backup is super-easy in MODX Cloud.

Restoring from a backup will OVERWRITE the data and files in the target Cloud. If you want both versions of the Cloud, back them both up.

  1. Restore Backups

    On the Cloud Edit Page, navigate to the "Backups" tab. In the list of available Backups, right-click the Backup or click the Backup's cog icon. Click "Restore this Cloud from this Backup" in the drop down menu.

  2. Restore Backups

    A confirmation window will pop up, and all you have to do is click "Restore Into Cloud" to start the restore process.

  3. You will receive a notification when the process is complete (usually a within a minute or two, unless the backup is very large). Notifications are emailed, and they also show up in the Notifications section of the MODX Cloud dashboard.
