Next click on the IMPORT FROM button that will produce a drop-down of options. To select a file backup like discussed in the previous article, just click the FILE option. If your backup is fairly large and exceeds 512 MB, you will either have to purchase the Pro version of the plug-in or create a smaller backup. A small backup can be created by following the exclude options discussed earlier in the previous article.
** BEFORE UPLOADING YOUR BACKUP, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT LOGIN INFO OR AT LEAST THE RIGHT EMAIL ASSOCIATED WITH THE WORDPRESS BACKUP. THE BACKUP WILL OVERRIDE THE CURRENT WORDPRESS WEBSITE AND THE ADMIN LOGIN WILL BE THE SAME LOGIN USED WHEN THE BACKUP WAS MADE **
After the backup is done getting prepared, you should see a panel appear asking you to proceed.
This scary pop-up is simply just saying that clicking the PROCEED button will ultimately delete your current WordPress website and be replaced by your backup.
