If you have a full backup available, it would be better to upload the backup file to your home directory, inform your hosting provider and they will restore it for you.

You can also follow the steps listed below to restore a home directory backup.

Login to your control panel and click Backups.
Click the Browse button next to the option which says Restore a Home Directory Backup.
Select the cPanel backup file which you want restored.
Click the Open button and click the Upload button.
