    Hello

    A client of mine has downloaded a backup of his site and wants me to upload it for him.
    He wants a new domain, but wants to keep the old site.
    So is it possbile to upload a full cPanel backup to a different username and domain?

    Thanks
    Tom

    As far as I know, its not possible. You will have to change the username/domain name afterwards. What you can do is temporarily rename the existing domain/user and then restore the backup. Then you can change the username/domain name of restored account to a new one and rename the old one back to original user/domain name.
