    Although I have the monthly and weekly backups enabled, I only see the last weekly backup in "Backup Restoration"
    I am using the "new" backup system.
    Both daily and monthly backups are incremental.
    The backups are physically there (/backup/incremental/accounts/) and the backup itself is done without problems.

    The situation is the same on all cPanel installations I have so I suppose I must be missing something or it's a general bug.

    Ok, but is there a way to restore an incremental backup from the command line? The monthly backup files are physically there on the server, I just need a method to restore these "older" backups since it can't be done in GUI.
    I am wondering about the point of having both weekly and monthly backups if I can only restore the latest (usually weekly) backup.

    You could package up the directory associated with the username of the account and restore it using the /scripts/restorepkg utility. However, were the older backups generated with the legacy backup system? If so, you can restore them via:

    "WHM Home » Backup » Legacy Restore Backups"

    If the accounts were backed up with the new backup system, you should be able to restore them via:

    "WHM Home » Backup » Backup Restoration"

    If this is not working, feel free to open a support ticket so we can take a closer look. You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.
