    Using the Full Backup option in a user's CPanel account (http://site:2082/frontend/default/backup/fullbackup.html), how can I restore an account using the gzipped file that it creates? I'm not sure what script does this - there are options to restore home backup and sql backups, but not for the full backups.

    Thanks,

    Matt

    CPanel support hasn't given me the correct answer - I have been told twice to untar it, even though that doesn't work...

    tar pzxvf (file)?

    or..

    gunzip <file> (or gzip -d <file> same thing)

    then

    tar xvf <file>

    the first is a shortcut - does both untar and ungzip.

    None of that works - it can't just be un-gzipped, since it stores the files in strange locations, so that one of the CPanel scripts can extract it and create the account again.
