I have been unable to find this information in clarity anywhere, as most guides reflect individual cPanel accounts. I've got a lot of custom settings in WHM and do not want to have to re-do all that or install each individual plugin/add-on manually.

So I have 'Backup System Files' checked, as well as all the accounts, and the databases.

So how does one restore the system files?

Hello,

This is in case my server crashes and needs to be wiped - I'm basically asking what use backing up the system files is, as I cannot find any clear guide on how to restore anything using it.
