hi,

First sorry for my poor English.

i move 200+ (about 205 account) to my server location ==> /home.

all account generated by cpanel and name's equal "backup-{BACKUP-DATE_TIME}_{USER}.tar.gz".

i have Root access and i install cpanel two day age and no account create on it (fresh cpanel server)

my Question is : How can i Restore all account with one action ??

i know whm have option "Restore a Full Backup/cpmove File" but this option can restore one account in time for another account muse type user account this is not good and waste my time.

Hello :)

You could try using a command like this to restore all accounts via SSH:

Code:
for i in `ls /home/*.tar.gz|cut -d \- -f 2 | cut -d . -f 1 `;do /scripts/restorepkg $i;done
Note that you may want to run this command in a "screen" session as it may take a while to complete.

Thank you.

Restore multiple backup in one command ssh
if the filename of the full backups varied, you could store a list of the full paths to each backup in a text file, such as a text file at "/root/list_of_backups.txt" and then the command could be altered as follows:

# for x in $(cat /root/list_of_backups.txt); do echo /scripts/restorepkg $x; done;
