Backup and recovery for distro

I broke my box and wanted to recover from a backup. I re installed the Distro version V1.88.210.57 then tried to recover from a backup of the same version. I locate the file and press the go button. I can see the progress of the file uploading. Then it stops and I restart the box, check for extension and nothing. What steeps am I missing?

Is the backup from a V1.88.210.57 system?

yes it is the same version.
I store the backup on a FTP site, and tried to upload it using the GUI. The GUI shows the status of the file as its moved to the FPBX box and when it completes that’s it. No message to reboot or a completion message. Never had to recover from a backup and now is not looking so good.
