Restore backup failed
WaffleUncle last edited by girish
We currently have several backups of Invoice Ninja as .tar.gz files.
We had to move the instance but we can't restore it because it says that the backup.tar.gz file can't be found.
On the other hand our backup file is called: app_client.technoredac.ca_v1.3.34.tar
What should I do to restore my backup

Are you moving the app or are you moving Cloudron itself? Are you trying to restore just the app or the entire server/cloudron ?

I try to restore only the app to new instance.
At first I broke the server so cloudron was not responding.
So I went to the backup folder to download a copy before re-formatting the VPS.
Then I installed Cloudron and installed the application and tried to restore it from the application
@WaffleUncle So you are using the Import button in the app section, correct - https://docs.cloudron.io/backups/#import-app-backup ?
In your case, it looks like your backups were in the file system and not external. If that is the case, you have to fill up the 'Import Backup' dialog manually:
Upload the backup app_client.xxx.tar.gz to somewhere in the server like
In the import UI, Choose Filesystem
Put the path as
It should import now.
