    Hello

    I have a a Full Backup/cpmove File named: cpmove-domain.com.tar.gz

    When I try to restore it, says:
    Yes, username and domain is the same. I do not have access to old server. How can I manually fix the .tar.gz file and change the username and restore it?

    Regards

    Hello :)

    Did the account username include a period, or was that only used in the name of the backup archive? You can rename the backup archive via the "mv" command. EX:

    Code:
    mv cpmove-username.com.tar.gz cpmove-username.tar.gz
    However, if the account was using an invalid username at the time of the backup, you would have to manually extract the archive, modify all entries of the invalid username to a new valid username, and then package back the contents into an archive.

    Thank you.
