This is a quick example of how to restore an example directory: /var/www on your server.

Step 1

Create a file backup for /var/www  (as an example).

Step 2

Go to your backup page, under the "Backup History" section click the little "i" on the right, then click "Raw Download Link" and copy the output.

Step 3

On your server, run the following command, replace the raw download link you obtained in the previous step:

wget "PasteTheRawDownloadLinkHereBetweenTheQuotes" -O "backup.tar.gz"

Step 4

Now that you downloaded the backup on your server, restore it as shown below by running:

tar --overwrite -xvf backup.tar.gz --directory /var/www

Note: this will overwrite your /var/www  directory by the one in the backup archive. It is a good practice to extract the backup in a temp folder first and inspect it.
