How do I restore a database backup?


To restore a database backup, you must create a new database instance, specifying the backup that you want to restore during the create request.  Your backup is loaded to the new instance, and you will receive a DNS endpoint for the new instance. After the restore operation is complete, you can update your application to use the new endpoint.

The original instance is not altered during a restore operation and may remain in use or be deleted through the API, CLI, or Control Panel.
