Blog >> New Feature: Restoration Path Changes

We are pleased to announce the myRepono backup restoration system has been updated to allow for changes to restoration file paths.

Restore Backup: Path Changes

Restore Backup: Path Changes

The restoration path changes feature is a search and replace process which is used for all file paths during the restoration process. This allows you to specify changes to the paths for files you are restoring, allowing you to restore files to new locations.

For example, if you have a backup which was created on a server which uses the cPanel control panel software, then for example your WordPress index file may be located at a path similar to: /home/username/public_html/wordpress/index.php

If you want to restore this file to a server which uses the Plesk control panel software then you may need to adjust this path to: /var/www/vhosts/

In this case you would simply provide a path change 'search term' of /home/username/public_html/ with a 'replace value' of /var/www/vhosts/

The path change feature also allows you to run a live test of the restoration system. For example, by using the 'search term' of /home/username/public_html/ with a 'replace term' of /home/username/public_html/restore/, then all your selected files would be restored into a sub-directory called 'restore' - avoiding the need to involve your 'live' files when they do not require restoration.

Path changes are not limited to paths, you can search and replace any value, including file extensions. This may be particularly useful if you need to make a global change from '.php5' to '.php' file extensions.

The restoration path change also means myRepono is now an ideal solution for transferring/migrating your website between web hosting providers.

"Alexandre, the restoration path changes feature can be found in the 'Confirm Restoration' section of the restoration process, this is the confirmation stage which is shown after selecting your files for restoration. By default only the 'Set Path Changes' link/text is shown and this link must be selected to display the full path changes feature."
