    Last night node where my WHM VPS was dead for 1 hour, I thought everything is lost but the node come back to live.

    Lets presume WHM VPS is compromised but accounts backup are available on ftp location. Will I be able to install WHM on anther VPS and connect it to initial ftp account and restore all accounts ?

    Also whats the best practice to fully back everything including WHM and by a simple restore function to restore the whole VPS content ? Snap shoots ?

    @crossing,

    Buy new VPS and your hosting provider will install cpanel, etc...

    Backup are available on ftp location ? means vps ?

    If so, the best option is you need to sync the account to new sersver and restore it.

    You'll need to move the backups back to the new server from the remote location. Have a look here:
    WHM » Backup » Restore a Full Backup/cpmove File

    There is no way to fully backup WHM and it's settings. There is this very active Feature Request that you might like to know about though:
    Clone a cPanel server configuration to a new server (excluding server specific items) - cPanel Feature Requests
