    Default FTP for root

    Hi all

    I want to connect to my server via FTP so I can upload backups created via FTP to a remote server. Can yuo by default use username : root password : root password to connect via FTP?

    I have tried but it won't connect. Allow connection with root is set to yes in whm. DO you have to doing something else?

    Try WinSCP trough SSH, not trough FTP.

    Thank you for this, worked a treat. Where do I copy the Backup files to so they are available inside WHM for restore please?

    in WHM-> Backup -> Restore a Full Backup/cpmove File
    it says:

    "The files must be in one of these directories on the server: /home, /home2, /home3, /root, /usr, /usr/home, /web"
