Wordpress detection and restore

Restoring wordpress is difficult for many novices and it's our most popular request - they don't understand files, the database, and database user permissions. A 1 click solution to restore Wordpress would be great, which would restore files, database user and database.


Detect folders with wp-config.php file, read database credentials from file. Use this data to restore a wordpress installation.

Hi,


We need some clarifications on that..

Basically you want JetBackup to identify a "system" (wordpress, joomla, drupal - whatever) and to be able to restore directly this system instead of a full account restore ?


Thanks,

Eli.

HI Eli,

Yes correct, so in cPanel perhaps another JetBackup section called 'My Apps' or similar. On this page would list out the user's installed applications found in their home dir, so they could restore the app root, the database and associated permissions in a single click.

It's difficult for novices to understand what a database is, and if they accidently delete it, or have a problem, they don't understand they need to find the database name in the wp-config.php file, re-create the database and restore it, for example - the user just want's to say 'restore my wordpress from this date' and everything happens automatically.


Thanks,


Elliot
