Two file data when do backup


#1

Hi all, I was backup my site and found there are 3 items. One is the backup sql and 2 of the files with the names local-files and local-private-files. According to the guide there’s should be only one file data. When I do restore site which file should I use?


#2

To restore your database you can use the file with .sql extension.

The other two files are backups of your private and public files, which you may need when you move to another server. Here is a helpful link.

Can you explain to me what is private files and public files?


#4

Private files are locked to the user who created it. Public files can be viewed by anyone. Please read the manual for general questions.
