I created a site for a customer a couple of years back in Joomla, and kept an xcloner back-up. He  then let his hosting expire and found himself more engrossed with another project.

He now wants his site restored - the old site was on joomla 2.5, but I figured if I could restore it locally I could see what was salvagable from the css styling of the new site in Joomla 3, but I am going round and round in circles trying to find out how to do this. 

I am first and formost a graphic designer, I'm fine with joomla and css, I get a little lost on the more 'computer oriented aspects' - like how am I to use ftp on a local host and I don't have a XCloner.php file or a TAR.php cos they were all deleted from the original server.

Yoiu can get XCloner.php and TAR.php restore scripts from the XCloner packages on our site, extract them and look for subfolder restore/


Hope it helps. Ovidiu
