This guide will guide you how to manually restore an account from remote ssh destination.Login using ssh to your backup server, and navigate to the backup folder.

ssh backupuser@
 cd /home/server100/accounts/jetbackupmanager/snap.2015-10-29.031006/jetbackupmanager

Note that the “snap*” folders are the actual backups, and the backup date is indicated at the folder name.

To make sure you are at the right folder, type “ls“, folders named “homedir” & “mysql” should be there.

Manually restore an account

Create a tar archive file of your backup content –

tar -czvf cpmove-jetbackupmanager.tar.gz ./

Copy your tar file to the server you want to restore it –

scp cpmove-jetbackupmanager.tar.gz root@

Login to the server you want to restore the backup on using ssh.
Navigate to the home folder

cd /home

Restore the backup using cPanel’s script –

/scripts/restorepkg cpmove-jetbackupmanager.tar.gz

All done !
