Restore CLI - Transfer Backup


I created a backup on a server, trying to download it via the GUI caused a 500 error (backup probably too large). I transferred the backup to a new PBX using SCP, which all went fine.

Is there a way to have the backup appear in the Restore tab to use? Apprecaite that you can use the “Upload” option, but due to the size of the backup this isn’t an option I am comfortable relying on.

Try copying the backup to /var/spool/asterisk/backup/ and then set the correct permissions:
chown asterisk:asterisk *.tgz

I do recommend restoring backups from CLI: Backup and Restore FreePBX 15+ - PBX GUI - Documentation

Cheers, will give it a go (if I get a chance) and mark this as the solution.
