Hi all,

Our company is considering provisioning another cPanel-based server to be ready to go as a fail-safe in case our original server runs into irrecoverable problems.

My question is: If I set up the current "live" server to back up to the "fail-safe" server, what would be the correct procedure to make those backups visible in the Restore interface on the "fail-safe" server?

Thanks!

depends on your setup, as yes it can be set such way that you will see the files in restore interface.

Highly recommended to do offsite backup and point both live and redundant server to that backup storage as this way you will be restore backups via restore interface.

Hey, thank you for your reply :)

We would also be using offsite cloud backups, although it was my understanding you could not restore from offsite backups at this time. The documentation I read was a little bit out of date, so maybe that feature was added in v68. I'll have to do some more research.
