    Hi, I can't seem to find specific reference to this.

    I moved my cPanel accounts to another provider.
    Didn't work out very well :(

    Want to move them back to my previous host (which was not discontinued, so the accounts are still there).
    However in the interim the data in those accounts (email,mysql,public_html) has changed.

    If I package the Cpanel account on the current server -> scp that package back to the original server.
    What do I need to do in regards to restoring that account on the original server, keeping in mind the account already exists.

    Thanks

    If you wish to overwrite the existing account with the backup you currently have, use command

    /scripts/restorepkg cPanel-user --force
