    After an issue on my Mac, I had to restore the folders containing my two websites from backup (not from the Publii provided backup, from another backup solution).

    Now, when I open Publii, instead of presenting me with the last opened website and allowing me to switch between the two sites with the droplist, it asks me to create a new site.

    When I click on Cancel, it opens one of the two sites, but the second one is gone. Yet, both websites are in their usual subfolders.

    Is there a way to tell Publii to reload the second site from its folder?

    If the website does not appear on the list it means that it is not recognized by Publii as a proper website folder. Please check if your second website contains a similar files (especially the ones in the input/config/ subfolder) as the first website. I suppose that some files are missing.

    Indeed, I ended up pulling back an older backup and it worked.
