    After reinstall the web server under FreeBSD, is there any possible to restore a backup of all accounts (Web-accounts) on WHM/Cpanel?
    please inform me about restore from backup files.

    Do not start the backup progress
    Code:
    /scripts/cpbackup
    [cpbackup] Backup failed! /usr/home/admin is not mounted! at /scripts/cpbackup line 851.

    To mount or umount a backup drive manually you might use a command similar to these:

    To make the backup drive visible to the backup system:

    mount /dev/sdb1

    To remove it from service:

    umount /dev/sdb1

    Note: there is no n in umount command.

    It appears to me you're attempting to back up to a directory on your main drive though. Bad idea in my opinion. What's the sense in backing up to a directory on the same drive? If that drive goes, it takes your backups with it.
