Problems restoring from backup

Continuing the discussion from HowTo: Install Kegbot Server on Digital Ocean:

Can you be more specific about what’s not working? An error message or log would help.

I type
(kegbot-server.venv)[email protected]:~$ kegbot restore /home/kegbot/Downloads/
and get
CommandError: Archive does not exist: /home/kegbot/Downloads/

i am trying to take a backup in the download folder on my computer and move it restore it on digital ocean. i am using unbuntu 14.04 lts if this helps

This means the file does not exist on the server (at least, not at that path). Have you already copied it to the server?

i have not cpoied it to the server, how can i copy it to digital ocean?

ok so I have copied it to the server and

this is my command
(kegbot-server.venv)[email protected]:~$ kegbot restore /home/kegbot/kegbot-data/media/backups/

this is the message i get
