    need to restore deleted domain from backup but I cannot find the username of domain

    I need to restore a deleted domain from backup but I cannot find the backup file because I do not know the username.

    IF a domain has been deleted and all i have is a bunch of backup files, how can I find out the username so I can restore the backup.

    I would have never though this could be a problem. It should list backups by domain name instead of some obscure username someone used and doesn't even remember. Almost nobody forgets their domain name. Almost.

    Ok. If you have a backup of an old httpd.conf file, search for the domain name in that to find the username. If you don't have a backup of httpd.conf that contains that domain, then I guess you will not be able to restore that domain until you figure out the username the client used when he created the account.
