Run a MySQL Restore Operation


You can restore the entire backed up instance from a default subclient to either the same instance or a different instance on the source client. You can also restore the instance to a different destination server.

For information about running the restore operation for the entire instance, see Restoring One or More Databases.


  • During a restore operation, data directory of the destination MySQL server is overwritten. The data is not staged at any location.

  • You cannot perform a point-in-time restore for a MySQL instance configured with MySQL Enterprise backup. Instead, for a MySQL Enterprise backup operation, you can browse and restore to its specific SBT image.
