How to restore a backup file from another server in local by flywheel

I have a backup file from another sever, how can i import in local and test the site functionality.
My main purpose is to restore the site with the available backup file and test its functionality.
Let me know if that’s possible using local by flywheel.
Note: This backup file is not from any cPanel or using any plugin of wordpress, its a manual backup file from the server hosted.

Hi @Bhavana

A zip file from a WordPress site should just drag and drop into Local to begin the import process as long as it has a WP-Content and SQL. For a more manual workflow you can use the steps outlined here to move everything over:

Manually Import a Local Site

Okay thanks.
