I did a sql backup through cpanel and get an extra file with gzkey at the end and also no users are carried over.
What's the gzkey file for?
Why didn't the users carry over?



cpanel account on server1
cpanel->backup

Download a MySQL Database Backup
tgpgallery

saved on client computer as tgpgallery.gz

Server2 same accountname
cpanel->backup
Restore a MySQL Database
select tgpgallery.gz
upload

' Restoring Database ' with 3 pages of text

Server2->cpanel->MySQL®Databases Current Databases:
xxxtgp_tgpgallery
xxxtgp_tgpgallerygzkey

It looks like the db was restored ok but no usernames are there
What is the second db for? same name but has gzkey added

One of our customers detect the same when restoring a db from other cpanel server.

Some advises ?

That is fixed in the latest builds (at least in C94, but I think also in S and R). Make certain your version of cpanel is the latest. You can compare the version numbers with http://layer1.cpanel.net

In the meantime, that gzkey database can be deleted.
