    Tired of it taking 20-30 commands and 20 minutes of fiddling just to restore one file from a cpbackup archive, only to discover it's the wrong file?

    This command allows you to restore files from cPanel cpbackup tarballs in one command.
    Example:
    Code:
    [host1:/home/fredshop/public_html/plugins]# cprevert error_log
    user = fredshop
    looking for ./public_html/plugins

    --> 20100808_daily ... hf(no change)
    --> 20100807_daily ... hf(no change)
    --> 20100806_daily ... hf(no change)
    --> 20100805_daily ... hf(no change)
    --> 20100805_weekly ... hf(no change)
    --> 20100729_weekly ... hfm
    --> 20100722_weekly ... hfm
    --> 201007_monthly ... hf(not found)
    --> 201006_monthly ... hf(not found)
    --> 201005_monthly ... hf(not found)
