How to Restore Files

Before you start, we highly recommend using the cPanel File Manager tool to delete the public_html folder and create a new, empty public_html folder. This will ensure that the backup is restored cleanly. Click here for a guide on accessing the cPanel File Manager. Once you're in, just find and delete the folder titled public_html to something like public_html.old-currentdate







Once that's done, create a new public_html folder. This will make the restored files go into a clean folder.

(1)Click on +Folder > (2)type public_html > (3)leave the second field blank > (4)click Create New Folder




Step 1
- Access the Browse section of the backup you want to restore from

How to Restore Emails
Note 1: This procedure restores all emails that were on the server for that email account at the specific time of the backup point's date. This won't affect or delete any other emails currently on the account.

Note 2 : If you had set up your email account on a device as POP, the emails may have been downloaded onto your device and deleted from the server (as that's how POP normally works) in the time between 2 download points, meaning the emails may not have been backed up.

Note 3: If the email account was deleted from cPanel, you'll first have to create it again from the Email Accounts tool in cPanel

Step 1 - Access the Browse section of the backup you want to restore from
