Restore backups

To restore an account from a backup file, perform the following steps:

  1. Click daily, monthly, or weekly to select the type of backup to restore.

    Note:

    The interface will only display the backup types that you selected in WHM's Legacy Backup Configuration interface (Home >> Backup >> Legacy Backup Configuration).

  2. Select the account that you wish to restore.
  3. Select the checkboxes that correspond to the restored account's desired configuration options.

    Notes:

    • Only recreate accounts when absolutely necessary.
    • The Dedicated IP Address option assigns a new IP address from the IP address pool to the account.
    • If the account contains subdomains, select the appropriate checkboxes to restore their entries.
    • This feature restores both locally-stored and remotely-stored MySQL® databases.
  4. Click Start Restore.
