Overview

This interface allows you to review your server’s transfer and restore logs.

Transfer logs

This interface displays transfers that use the current transfer system in the Transfer Session Logs section. The interface displays transfers that use WHM’s Transfer or Restore a cPanel Account interface (WHM >> Home >> Transfers >> Transfer or Restore a cPanel Account). The Completed Sessions section contains the finished transfer sessions, while the Pending Sessions section contains in progress or stalled sessions.

Note:
  • The /usr/local/cpanel/logs/backup_restore_manager_log file is the restoration process’s log file.
  • The /usr/local/cpanel/logs/backup_restore_manager_error_log file is the restoration process’s error log.

Log rotation

If no activity occurs in a pending transfer for two hours, the system sets the transfer to failed. The system sets all pending logs to failed after 30 days.

The xferdebug touch file

If you cannot resolve your transfers’ issues via the standard transfer and restore logs, read our Touch File for Additional Transfer and Restore Log Diagnostic Entries documentation.
