Do you mean that you have a dump of the database you want to restore?

Well, to start, those urls you provided (172.176….) both are invalid.

Second, The only customizations you can make on the zabbix screen is to change the theme, which only changes the colors.

Regarding restoring the database, assuming that you are running MySql, and that the backup was a mysqldump, you should be able to read the sql file in order to recreate the database with your data. That would be done with the mysql command.

I’m not a PostgreSql expert, but you can look at this: https://gist.github.com/matthewlehner/3091458

Which is a script which will do automated backups, there should be instructions on how to restore.
