My website frontend was not working any more after I tried to make an update to 3.4.7, the update did not fully work (not enough server space) and now my frontend ( had a 500 server error.
My xcloner restore of has worked now - in a /restore/ directory inside the directory where the original install was. I had trouble because it looks like I had to mark the backup file from the dropdown menu in the restore screen. I have already assigned the domain to the /restore/ directory. The only problem remaining now is that the /de and /es language links are still pointing to http://www.majestic-.....restore/de etc.

What if I simply run the restore right in the original directory of the old installation? I made a few changes after the last backup, but I can extract the necessary stuff from the backend first (backend still works) and put them back in after the restore. To restore in the original directory (overwriting the old install) I need a new MySQL database, right? Or would the procedure be different? Do I have to empty the original directory, or do I just copy the 3 files in the directory in which the old Joomla installation is located, restore and the old files will be overwritten?
