    Hello

    I've used "Generate/Download a Full Backup" to move an account from one server to another.

    When I go to the new server and use the "Restore a Home Backup" - it just creates a folder in the user's root folder called backup-12.20.2003_18-00-29_edgeyour with loads of stuff (including the public_html) inside it.

    How do I get cpanel to put all this stuff in the right place?!

    What a nightmare - I assumed uploading the tar.gz using the restore option would do exactly that.

    Please help!

    Thanks! That was indeed the post I found five minutes later after trying a search again.

    I've used /scripts/restorepkg username and that's done the job nicely - many thanks
