Can you reinstall the same template on the same Webflow site?

I understand templates are typically sold to be used on one site, and that’s fine and understandable. Let’s say I installed a template on example.webflow.io. Now, while working on the site, something went wrong or I messed up. I would like to do a “factory reset” on the template. In other words, just put a fresh copy of the same template on the same site or webflow subdomain (example.webflow.io).

Is this possible? Or would I still have to start a new webflow site/project?

And if I did HAVE TO start a new site/project, if I delete the old site, I am able to use the same template on another website without too much hassle?

BTW, to all the amazing people who reply to my questions (past and present). You guys are stars. Thank you.

You could just run an old backup of the site before you changed anything? If that’s not possible I think you would need to make a new site with the same template. You can use the template as much as you want as long as it’s for the same client.

Not sure I understand. Can you download these backups and use them to restore to another project/site? If not, I have thought that each time you start a new site it a new backup timeline and you could only restore to that site. I am happy to be corrected. Thanks.

If you make a copy of the website you can only revert it back to the original copy. If you have been working on the same website template from the start you can use the backup to restore the template. The other option is to create a new site with the original purchased template. A purchased template can be used as much as you want if it’s for the same project/client.
