    Hi All

    I have two servers and I use the new "Incremental" backups, which appears to work well. However it is not obvious how restore an account taken from server 1 onto server 2.

    Can some one point me in the right direction.

    Thanks.

    Hi

    Thanks for that, I did see it, but I missing something.

    Incremental backups taken every day on server 1
    All backups files copied to Server 2 into a known location. I don't know the best place for this and there is no guidance as to where this should be.
    Server 1 goes off line and can not be contacted.
    I will now need to restore the accounts from server 1 onto server 2.
    There is no explanation of how do do this, as on server 2 it only lists the accounts that are on that server and none from server 1.

    :)

    Hello :)

    You can keep the incremental backups on the second server in the same location they are stored on the first server. EX:

    Code:
    /backup/incremental/accounts
    You can then restore them on the second server via "WHM Home » Backup » Backup Restoration".

    Thank you.
