As you can see in the picture above, the parameters to be set are very few.
First create (if necessary) and/or select a connection account. In order to create a new account, you simple need the server address, username and password.
Now select the MySQL backup file (the dump file created by Iperius).
Finally, choose if make the restore over an existing database, overwriting it, or whether automatically create a new database where to make the restore. If you have enough space, it is always recommended to create a new database, to avoid possible data loss due to the database overwriting.
Once you’ve configured the various parameters, click the button “Run Restore” and wait for the operation to be completed.
