    Im trying to work out how to restore some files from cpbackup to /etc

    I get the following
    Code:
    root@host [/restore/cpbackup/daily]# gzip -d files/_etc_exim.conf.gz
    
    gzip: files/_etc_exim.conf.gz: not in gzip format
    
    The files in dirs/ extract fine....

    Is there any automated way to restore all these settings files, or do they have to be done manually ???

    Hello :)

    Please run the following commands on your system:
    Code:
    # cd /restore/cpbackup/daily/files
    # ls -al
    Check to see if "_etc_exim.conf.gz" exists, or if it's already extracted as "_etc_exim.conf". The reason I mention this is because these files are already extracted in the "files" directory on a test server.

    Thank you.
