How to restore Incremental backup on cPanel Machine

By | 22 September 2011

Most of you got the Incremental backup located at ‘/backup’ so if you are not the one of those please modify the value of ‘/backup’ path to the correct path.

Step 1) Taring the backup folder

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/cpuwatch 4.0 tar -czf /home/user.tar.gz /backup/cpbackup/daily/user

* /usr/local/cpanel/bin/cpuwatc is used to monitor the cpu load. If the load goes past the set limit, it will stop the application and resume it after the load averages are below the threshold for a few seconds

Step 2) Restoring the backup

/scripts/restorepkg user

** Modify ‘user’ to your correct user value
