    Hi,
    I need help with restoring backup. I have generated full backup. Now i want to restore it. Actually i got some problem so i am thinking to Recreate account. So i will have to restore my full backup. Please let me know 2 method to restore full backup.

    1) with control panel.
    2) with shell.


    My internet service is not fast. it is very slow. i dont think i can restore backup with control panel. so i will restore it with shell access.

    I am root. i have all permissions.

    Please reply me asap thanks.

    Best Regards from,
    Farrukh Hussain

    Go on, have a guess
    Not sure I understand. If you're the server adminh, then you can simply use the WHM > Restore Backups, option.

    If you're an end-user you have to ask your web hosting provider to perform the restore from the cPanel backup that you created.

    If you have generated the full backup from the CPanel > Generate/Download full backup then that can only be restored by the adminsitrators.As chirpy said that if you are the Server Admin then place that tar.gz in /home and use the WHM > Backup > Restore a Full Backup/cpmove file, specify the username and it will restore the entire backup
