depend what you need.
if you need database restore then copy mysqldump files to server and execute:
bzip2 -d name_of_mysql_dump.bz2
mysql -uusername -ppassword < mysq_database_dump.sql
note: this will replace database on server
for files restore:
copy all *.tar.bz to server, starting with Monday (because Monday is full backup, and rest days are only incremental of day before till sunday which is last day of week)
best way is to extract to temp directory and then move to right location, you can chose which files you need to restore.
to extract file to /ispconfig_restore:
copy all files to /ispconfig_restore folder
and extract one file a time starting with FULLbackup:
tar -xvif name_of_archive_FULL.tar.bz2 -C /ispconfig_restore
and then for Tuesday
tar -xvif name_of_archive_Increment_2.tar.bz2 -C /ispconfig_restore
tar -xvif name_of_archive_Increment_3.tar.bz2 -C /ispconfig_restore
and all files are restored into /ispconfig_restore directory.
and you can move files to original location.
If you need files from (monday) just extract FULL archive.
I hope you will manage to restore
