    Technical question...

    Does anybody have any idea on restoring a cPanel database backup into a MySql database?

    My previous host cancelled my account without warning me, and now I have only that backup of my database, but it seems that I won't have cPanel in the future.

    It should be in this form:

    username_dbname.tar.gz right??

    Just untar it and inside should be a stock .sql file...

    On the new host, make the new db and set the permissionsand upload and from shell:

    mysql -uUsername -pPassword NewDBname < /path/to/db/backup.sql
