    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.
