    I am trying to restore a full backup from cpanel centos 5, in cpanel centos 6 and the homedir doesn't extract with this error:

    /bin/gtar: invalid option -- 'q'
    Try `gtar --help' or `gtar --usage' for more information.
    /bin/gtar: This does not look like a tar archive
    /bin/gtar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
    Unable to copy home directory for user:

    Hello,

    Have you tried to extract your backup file through command line ? Please try to extract it and check if you are getting same error with your backup file.

    Hello :)

    It looks like the archive might have been corrupted. Do you notice any error messages when attempting to manually extract the archive from the command line?

    Thank you.
