How do I restore a wiki?

Because wikis are just Git repositories, you can make changes locally and push them to your repository using a Git workflow.

To restore a wiki:

  1. Open the panel of the backup, click “download wiki” and choose “current” for the latest backup or any of the snapshots available. The download contains the complete wiki repository.

Download GitHub wiki

  1. Clone the empty wiki of the repository you want to restore into, following the instructions on the GitHub documentation.

Clone GitHub wiki locally

Now that you have a local copy of your empty wiki and a local copy from the wiki of your backup, you can simply copy the files from the backup into the empty wiki and commit them.
