    Hello everyone. I recently migrated my website to godaddy in order to have full root access.
    I use prestashop to sell spare parts online. Since I want to update it, I made a backup (full) and downloaded it to my PC. When I started making it , a little notification was written above it :

    "A full backup will create an archive of all the files and configurations on your website. You can only use this to move your account to another server, or to keep a local copy of your files. You cannot restore full backups through your cPanel interface."

    What does that mean? What is the point of a "full backup" if I can't restore it by using cPanel?
    Thanks in advance!
