I believe it's not possible to restore the backup from "Custom S3-compatible backup locations" so what's the point to make a backup,

I do not see the option to restore it, other than FTP, is there is a better option to restore the backup from "Custom S3-compatible backup locations"

Hey there! When restoring from any remote location, you'll need to download the backup file to server first. There isn't an automated way for the restore tools to pull that file from the remote server, although that is something we're looking into for the future.

We mention this in our documentation here:


"To restore backups from these locations, users must transfer the backup file to their servers before they can restore the backups."

It's still a good idea to perform remote backups in case there is a hardware failure on the local system.
