Hi

I've configured the new backup in WHM 11.42.0 (build 6) to my S3 storage. It all works as expected and I have a bucket full of 'tar.gz' files.

But I'm unclear as how these are restored, for example should one of my CPanels get hacked and require restoration.

I think the process is to delete the offending account, upload the 'tar.gz' backup file to the server then restore from Home »Backup »Restore a Full Backup/cpmove File is that correct?

Does the same process apply if the entire server is wiped out / hacked?

Many thanks,

Dan

This is documented at:

Remote Restoration

The same instructions apply if you are restoring the archive on a new server.

Thank you.
