Default Restoring an previous version of ispconfig from backup folder

Few months ago i got an issue with my server not backing up websites from one point.

There is a thread over here with my problem http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=64087

But since i didn't got any solutions to my problem and i suspect it's started when i updated ispconfig to latest version. My only solution is to restore backup of previous ispconfig and see.

So in my /backup folder i have


I guess it's backed up files from previous version of ispconfig. How do i restore it properly? do i just extract tar.gz files to their apropriate folders and load sql to ispconfig database?

Yes. The etc backup does not have to be restored, just restore the ispconfig backup and the sql dump. And do a backup of the current database and /usr/local/ispconfig directory, before you overwrite it.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
