    Unfortunately due to various circumstances, our VPS had to be reimaged. So, I need to restore from our original backups. I have followed the documentation Remote Restoration . However, when I start the restore process, WHM is not seeing the backups I have transferred. The Backup Config uses /backup (I believe is default) however, I don't know where this backup files is supposed to be on the server. We have only used remote backups. Thanks in advance for clarification.

    Hello :)

    Per our documentation, the location of the backup directory on your server will resemble BACKUPDIR/date/accounts where:

    BACKUPDIR is the variable from the /var/cpanel/backups/config file.
    date is in yyyy-mm-dd format, where yyyy is the four-digit year, mm is the month, and dd is the day of the month.


    So, you would upload the archives to:

    /backup/2014-10-31/accounts/

    Thank you.

    So, just to make sure in the root directory with /backup/date/accounts/. Is the accounts folder per account name or just "accounts".
