How to install/uninstall the BackHub restore app

Install BackHub restore app

Before you can restore a backup, the BackHub restore app must be installed.

For restoring a backup, writing permission to your GitHub account is necessary and therefore the BackHub restore app is installed separately so you can remove the app and it’s permissions after the restore has been completed.

Go to the GitHub App directory and start the installation. During the installation process, please allow access to “All repositories”. This is necessary because it’s the only way to get access to a newly created repository instantly.
