Hi Guys,
So I have a customer with a full backup. How do I go about (through WHM or CLI) restoring a specific database within the full backup to his account?

A full backup means a .tar.gz file , you will have untar the file first >> locate the mysql database.sql file and restore that file to the database , you can get the commands from google so its an easy stuff

Thanks - this is what I ended up doing. Was hoping there was a quicker /easier way for future reference, but guess not.

Hello,

I'm happy to see you were able to restore the database. There's no other method of obtaining the SQL file other than extracting it from the full backup archive unless you have a backup of the database itself.

Thank you.
