copy unzipped backup file to backup folder in virtual machine through filezilla/WinSCP and restore by
bench --site [sitename] --force restore /path/to/SQLFILE

Sir How to know [sitename]?

default site name is site1.local
so path is
bench --site site1.local --force restore /path/to/SQLFILE

otherwise site name u can get from frappe-bench/sites folder

I was try please suggest any video tutorial?


your site name is in your bench directory

Locate the backed up files or chech

You’ll find 3 files
Database, file, private file.

Copy to an external folder.

Then go back to bench folder
bench --site sitename --force restore path-to-the-database-file
