Restore of cPanel backup to different domain name


Recommended Posts

If cPanel account for has username mydomain on

a server, and a full cPanel backup is done, can that backup be

restored to another server's new cPanel account with same

username mydomain BUT account created under ?

Backup would include MySQL databases named mydomain_xxxxx

Understood that user would need to ensure after the restore that

all website source files reference

When a cPanel account is restored there is no way to pass any arguments for it to restore under an existing account/username, so it would have to be restored on the server using the existing username and domain name from the backup.

Once restored you could obviously reconfigure your files/path accordingly but based on what you've described it is unfortunately not possible while restoring.
