    my story, our server has been upgraded to fedora from rh9. and one of the ways i have done to backup the files are to compressed the /home directory.

    now, i tried to restore some of the directory that are in /home one example is: square00 user

    location: /home/square00

    i tried to create an account on whm (same account) and i just moved the created account on the new server to

    /home/square00 > /home/square00_WHM

    and i tried to uncompress my backup files and did try to restore by just moving the old square00 directory to home.

    /root/backup/home/square00 > /home/square00

    now, i tried to visit the site and the error that is being shown is

    What could be wrong? or, i really shouldt do that. And instead use cpanel's backup tool.

    Any suggestions?

    If there is trouble, it will find me
    chmod 755 /home/*/public_html
    All fixed?
