    It seems my dedicated server suffered a hardware failure, eventually resulting in a rebuid.
    No worries, I have backups of the user accounts and the system files safely on a remote FTP.

    How the heck do I perform a system restore, i can't figure it out.

    so performing a system files backup is a waste of time then ?

    Not at all. You'll need to restore what you need from those System Files, manually though. The docs list the files involved:
    System Backups - cPanel Documentation

    To add, some of them you may not need to bother with, they'd have been reconfigured when you setup and reconfigured the server from scratch again.

    I was hoping the system files backup would be similar to a restore on a PC, thus not having to reinstall CSF and reconfigure cphulk, hosts etc.
    I think, picking the bones out of the backup would probably take longer than just doing it manually.
