If i have a backup file that's 3 gigs in size that i made via the cpanl backup, how would i go about restoring it. Using the web interface wouldn't work. If i upload via ftp, is there away to tell cpanel to restore? or do i have to go through telnet? also, what about for large mysql backups made in cpanel, like 50 or 60 megs in size.
You could always untar it, and place the folders accordingly, then run cpanels permission fixes. It won't put the accounts back in WHM however. WHM should restore the accounts if you have a tar backup for each individual account.
