Restore from Directory

My complete web site has gone missing and have been advised to restore from backups - which are very old, (but better than nothing)

I have been advised by dreamhost the files can be found in a particular directory where I can restore them to my live web directory - but where do I find this web directory? Is it difficult then to upload the backup? Alan

To restore a dreamhost managed domain backup go to “Manage Domains” in the panel and click the "restore: button the far right end of the line for whichever domain you want to restore. You don’t have to upload anything.
