    Hey guys,
    So I have two servers: 1 I am a root admin of and the 2nd, I have re-seller access. I've made a full site backup using the backup wizard in cPanel (not a cpmove). When I use this backup to restore, it only extracts the contents of the full site. I hit restore with the home directory option. I'm just curious - to restore the entire user without cpmove, do I need to make backups of the 3 smaller backups (Home Directory, MySQL Databases, Email) and restore each separately? I see no use for the entire site backup and the way it's structured if it doesn't properly restore.

    You need to use the WHM option: Restore a Full Backup/cpmove File

    This is so that the server does not crumble under high load by an end users action and that an admin is always aware of the restoration being done.
