Issue with restore command, it doesn't work as described in the documentation?!


Hi, well this might not be a bug. But it but the restore command which is described here: Backing up your server | Yunohost Documentation doesn’t seem to work, as i try to restore wordpress__3.

I enter the command:
yunohost backup restore --apps wordpress__3
This is in the documentation:
yunohost backup restore --apps wordpress

But then i get the answer:

usage: yunohost backup restore name
                               [-h] [--system [SYSTEM [SYSTEM ...]]]
                               [--apps [APPS [APPS ...]]] [--force]
yunohost backup restore: error: the following arguments are required: name

Huh?! :thinking: am I missing something here?

For more info :
sudo yunohost backup - - help

To list the backups :
sudo yunohost backup list

Hi thanks but list shows the archives only, which the WordPress backup is in so, I’m right with the command right? Or does it only work if there is a sole backup of that app, so not a complete backup but one specific for WP__3?

As the message says, you need to provide the archive name …

But where? Because the documentation says:
yunohost backup restore --apps wordpress

So you like this?
yunohost backup restore --app 20210916-205412 wordpress__3

That gives the same error back.

Sorry for the hard time understanding here :frowning:

yunohost backup restore 20210916-205412 --apps wordpress__3
