This tutorial explains how you can restore a linux file backup of, for example the
/var/www directory on your server.

If you are using SimpleBackups, you can go to your backup page, under the "Backup History" section click the little "i" on the right, then click "Raw Download Link" and copy the output.
On your server, run the following command, replace the raw download link you obtained in the previous step:
wget "TarBackupLinkHereBetweenTheQuotes" -O "backup.tar.gz"
Now that you downloaded the backup on your server, restore it as shown below by running:
tar --overwrite -xvf backup.tar.gz --directory /var/www
Note: this will overwrite your
/var/www directory by the one in the backup archive. It is a good practice to extract the backup in a temp folder first and inspect it.
