Restore from manual cPanel backup
- From the cPanel home page, click Backup.
- In the Restore a Home Directory Backup area, click Choose File, and then select the backup
TARfile on your local machine.
- Click Upload.
How long the upload takes depends on the size of the site you're restoring. Once the restore completes, a page displaying all of the files that were restored displays.
