I've uploaded a full backup file to my new server.

However, it has not done anything. It simply placed a folder onto the root directory of the same name as the backup file, and though it has the files, it did nothing to apply them to the server.

So, is there something specific I'm supposed to do in order to get them applied? Or is this just another little annoyance? :P

(Sorry, I'm in a bad mood right now).

If anyone has any answers, please don't hesitate to post them.

Thanks.

Meh, I'd hate to say it, but I don't know exactly what they're talking about :p I'm a big noob to all this, as I don't know what the WHM is.

I know it would probably be a deal of trouble, but is there anywhere I can get a step-by-step guide to the process?

^^ Sorry if I'm being annoying, but I'm just new to this :)

i do not think that there is a complete documentation on this. however you can get some things about this at the cpanel.net documentation site.

You can PM me in case you find them hard. i can give a step by step explanation. Iam at AIM as: "tux image" or you can PM me your ID and I did be happy to help.

well I just found out that I don't have access to the WHM since I'm being hosted by a friend and apparently only he has access to the WHM.

I asked him to check it and look for "Restore account", so he's doing that now.

I'll reply again if it fails, perhaps I can get some more help.

Thanks again ^^
