Due to a large number of HDDs dying I had to rebuild my web server. I had weekly full back ups I had 5 accounts and the 4 were all between 14mb and the largest 535mb. Then ther ewas my main account which is 10.3GB I had zero problem restoring the other accounts.

After uploading the tar.gz to my /root I started the process it's been untaring for the last two and half hours. I'm afraid to stop it because I don't know if its actually doing anything. I use Xenserver on the back end and I see hdd usage is high and memory is all used up so I'm guessing its doing something.

Server Specs

Hypervisor: Xen Server 5.6
WHM 11.30.3 (build 5)
CENTOS 5.7 x86_64
2gb of memory
50gb of space

Thank you for any support.

The account may have large number of files especially in the email folder and thus may take some time. You could extract specific folders/files using tar as well if you know the paths of specific folders and there is online help available for that. Killing the process should keep the original file intact though.

Hello :)

You could run a command such as:

Code:
# ps auxf
This will help you to determine if the "restorepkg" process is still active, and give you an idea of which stage of the restore it's at.

Thank you.
