    How do I do backup from the tar file from SSH?

    Please explain or provide links. The WHM feature to transfer files doesn't always work for some odd reason.

    Thanks!

    If you mean how to restore a full backup from ssh you can use:

    /scripts/restorepkg backupname.tar.gz

    Assuming its a full cPanel generated backup:

    Move the backup to a location on your server
    cd to that directory
    /scripts/restorepkg backupname.tar.gz

    Should be that simple.

    Let me know if you still don't get it, do you have an MSN contact?

    I did this,

    cd /home

    downloaded the file to there,

    type 'dir' and it was there (font color of it was red?)

    then i do that backup thing and it says i need to download the file in home, home2, ect (and its in home!) but it acts like its not there

    If you need to take backup of user from ssh say userA , login to cd /scripts
    run command ./pkacct userA

    This will create the backup of userA in /home directory by name cpbackupmove-tar.gz


    To restore the backup use
    /scripts/restorepkg cpbackupmove-tar.gz
