How to restore a full Site backup from cPanel

In case you wish to restore the files in your Home Directory, you may use Backup >> Restore a Home Directory Backup cPanel option.

After locating this menu, select the backup file that you wish to restore and click Upload.

NOTE: You should use only backups generated via the Download a Home Directory Backup option; since a full cPanel backup has a slightly different structure, restoring it may create unnecessary files/folders that will take up disk space within your account.

You will be redirected to the next page and within a minute you may see the Restoring files tab.

This means that the backup file was uploaded and restored.

PLEASE NOTE: The following way of the backup restoration does not guarantee the correct work of the websites afterward. If you face any issues, please contact our Support Team for further investigation.
