I choose in Cpanel the option to make a full backup from one of my Joomla sites. After the backup I cleaned the whole public_html. Now the customer asked me to restore the enviroment.
When I use the restore option in Cpanel I see that the backup will be placed in a directory two levels higher than where I have authorization. The directory public_html will not be filled. What do I do wrong or what can I do to fix the customer environment.

With kind regards,

Wil

Could you elaborate on the specific option you used to backup the account? Are you attempting to restore the full account, the home directory, or a database?

Thank you.

When you backed up the account initially, did you use cPanel to backup the account or did you use an option in the Joomla administrative panel?

Thank you.

If you are restoring a home directory backup, it should restore the contents of the entire home directory to the same path. If this is not happening, and you have root access to the server, please open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can attempt to reproduce the issue. If you do not have root access, please consult with your web hosting provider about this issue so they can investigate it.

Thank you.

Please report the issue to your web hosting provider if you do not have root access to the server so they can take a closer look.

Thank you.

cPanel only develops the software that your hosting provider uses, we don't actually host your websites. The following page contains about how to determine who your hosting provider is:

Find My Host | cPanel, Inc.

It's not possible to restore a full cPanel backup archive with cPanel access only. If this is a full backup, you will need to consult with your hosting provider to have them restore it for you.

Thank you.
