Hi,
i have generated a Full cpanel backup from cpanel to remote ftp(new server's cpanel) . now to full backup file is available in new cpanel and i want to restore it fully, like we do with cpmove full backup.
Now can anyone guide me how to do without uploading again from WHM. as backup file is already available from old to new cpanel where i want to restore.

I do Not I understand:
you have a full cpanel backup in the /home/username/full_cpanel_backup.tar.gz
is that correct? if so

log in via SSH
mv /home/username/full_cpanel_backup.tar.gz /home/ or mv /home/username/full_cpanel_backup.tar.gz /root/
& you can now use the restore via the restore via cpanelmove function
or via cli /scripts/restorepkg

Yes i have Full backup at /home/username/full_cpanel_backup.tar.gz and i want to restore it from WHM>full cpmove> restore with username.
so should i use mv /home/username/full_cpanel_backup.tar.gz /home/ command for moving this backup for restoration via username?
