You can easily restore your WordPress site from a backup and push it to staging, right within the “MyKinsta” dashboard. This could make your life easier in a number of ways, such as:
- A smoother and more flexible development experience.
- See how your site worked previously without having to touch your live site.
- Recover and retrieve information from a previous backup without modifying your live site.
Restore WordPress Backup to Staging
Select your site in the Sites section and click on the backups tab. You’ll see a list of your available backups, which are available to restore as staging.
Simply select the “Restore to Staging” from the drop-down next to the backup you’d like to push to staging. Depending on how large your site is this may take a couple of minutes. You can then access your staging site, which now has its own environment, completely separate from your live production site.
Note: When restoring a live backup to staging, all staging backups will remain intact.
