Jira and Confluence automated backup using script

I found an article: https://bitbucket.org/atlassianlabs/automatic-cloud-backup/src/e6eba2f9d096cfd0a7963243539d733c1d722b42/backup.sh?fileviewer=file-view-default

This is what I have been looking for. Using an ubuntu box I can create and keep a local copy of our JIRA system.


1) How do I restore files from backup**.zip file ?

2) How do I do similar automated backup for confluence (I believe above script does JIRA only) ?
