Interface option to restore local backups
I need a option in platform to restore the local backup... Today the only way to restore a local backup is manual.
We can download application backups but there is not option to upload a backup so we can restore it.
Also need to be able to backup one application and then be able to restore it on another application. (server independant)
This way I can create a starter site that includes all my base wordpress plugins and then just restore it on my development application whenever I want.
Currently the only way to do this is to delete the current development application when I am finished it and then clone the starter application. This creates more work since I then have to setup the url for the developer application again (to be the same as the old one) along with SSL, etc... Keeping the same developer url as before means I do not have to setup my wordpress plugin licenses again.

Agreed. The lack of restore options and documentation on Cloudways is disappointing. Backup is only half of the equation. So far I've been disappointed with the restore options for Cloudways, which include:
- No option to restore from local backups
- No option to restore to another server
- If you clone an application, no option to use the backups from the original application
Essentially, it makes it extremely difficult to do any sort of testing.
