    Hi there,

    We need to restore a backup for one of our sites.

    We have the backup saved to our internal backup system, we haven't got the backup saved on the server itself. Is there a way to add the backup zip file, to the backup folder structure and restore it from WHM?

    Or how would I go about restoring it manually?

    Thank you

    Hello,

    Is this a cPanel-generated backup, or is it simply an archive of files associated with the account's home directory?

    Thank you.

    You can use SFTP or SCP to upload the archive to the /home directory on your cPanel server and then restore it using the following option:

    "WHM Home » Backup » Restore a Full Backup/cpmove File"

    Thank you.
