I'm restoring a Drupal site on shared hosting and I'm not sure if the process is working. It starts OK and I get this message:
The backup tar (files + database) is 77 MB and the SQL is 16 MB,
A lot of files and folders seem to get exttacted very quickly. I waited about an hour and the 'automatic restore' page didn't change and I never got a confirmation, but nothing seemed to be happening
So I tried to access the site & I got errors because various files were missing.
Is it likely that the restore could take a few hours or more? Am I just being impatient?
The files that are missing are in the tar file OK. I'm trying again and its been well over an hour and nothing seems to be happening….
