Hi Ovidiu!,

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:…..ubLniOepAO

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?Embarassed

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….

Hi Bill, try and manually extract the backup archive files then restart the restore process with the Skip files restore checked…


Hope it helps, Ovidiu
