Hi there -

Is there a way for me to run a full backup for an account and then using the Restore Backup feature, to restore the backup to a new/different domain/username?

In effect, I am trying to duplicate an account onto another domain without having to recreate/import databases.

Thanks.

Mike

Hmmm - okay, unfortunately I only have a single server.

In this case, however, can't I simply trick WHM/cpanel by simply renaming the file before restoring it?

OR - can I simply do this -

1. Run a full backup on domain 1
2. Change the username and domain to the one I wish to copy to
3. Restore my original backup

Hey! I think this should work!

Any opinion?

Thanks.

Mike
