Hi

I have just started up a new server, its a fresh install, I have 2 old accounts from an old
server backed up using the whm backup utility befroe the old server went off over a year ago.

How do i go about restoring these to user accounts please, i was hoping it would be as simple
as putting the backup files in to the backup dir /home/backup but evidently that dont works as
the backups are not showing in the restore panel...

Any advice please?

Hello,

Upload the archives to the /home directory and restore them via:

Code:
/scripts/restorepkg $username
Or, move them to the "/backup/$date/accounts" directory after enabling backups on the new server and restore them via:

"WHM Home » Backup » Backup Restoration"

Thank you.

format for $date please i.e. 05-06-2015 or 06-05-2015 etc.. thanks
