    I have backups stored on my home computer of all the sites that were on my server before my OS reload. My question is can I upload them through SSH to the home directory so they can all be restored through WHM, or do I need to recreate each account in WHM and restore them through Cpanel?

    What command do I use to upload them in SSH?

    You can upload using sftp (if your ftp program supports it) or download winscp

    http://winscp.sourceforge.net

    Just upload them then restore them, no need to create the accounts then restore them, if the backups are cpanel backups.

    This seems to be a most valuable program.

    I have a question. Many files on the server have no extension. I'm able to set the mode (ascii / binary) for those that have an extention, but does anyone know how to set it for files that have no extention? I tried adding *. to the list, but that didnt' work.
