How to install/uninstall the BackHub restore app

Install restore app from GitHub App directory. Remove from app settings.

The BackHub restore app must be installed before you can restore a backup.

For restoring a backup, write permission to at least one repository is necessary. The BackHub restore app is installed separately so that you can remove the app and its permissions after the restore has been completed.

Install BackHub Restore app

  1. Go to the GitHub App directory and start the installation.
  2. During the installation process, limit access to "Select repositories" and pick a random repository. Random, because it's not possible to choose none unfortunately. The restore app creates a new repository, so the selected repository here isn't affected in any way.
