Hello @cliff :wave:

Normally we can import from the backup (.zip) as shown on our article here .
I’ve also just tested the same thing few mins ago: made a downloadable backup from my MyKinsta account (into a .zip file), once downloaded, I imported that .zip file to my DevKinsta → Add Site → Custom Site → Import backup menu/section.
The import (Create site) was successful and I could access the local site just fine as expected, and then on my DevKinsta > Sites page, I could see that imported site listed as “WordPress” instead of “Custom site” (as shown on your Closingcosts site in that video you shared).

I’m not sure how you did get that .zip file (if it was not generated from MyKinsta), but if that backup .zip file import didn’t work well as expected, you may want to try with the manual method as shown on our article/doc here
