I have seen this posted before for version 4 of MT, but no answer.
When I try to do a restore in MT 5.12 from a .tar archived file - you get to the animated restore screen and that is it. It just keeps scrolling saying "Restoring Movable Type." but nothing happens and nothing is being restored.
This goes on ad infinitum.
Is there a solution to this and can someone tell me why the restore isn't working please. Under these circumstances if I needed to restore from a backup how would I do so without using the Restore function in MT5?
