Copy an Account From Another Server With an Account Password

  • This feature uses the cPanel API to generate a backup of the account and transfer it to the server for restoration.
  • If you are able to create a full backup, it is much preferable to do so and restore the backup file via Restore a Full Backup/cpmove file.


Note: Restricted Restore performs additional security checks on the backup file. If a component of the backup file has a security issue, the system will not restore that portion of the backup.

Restricted Restore is experimental and should not be considered an effective security control at this time. It is intended to allow restoring backups from untrusted sources in a future release. cPanel strongly recommends that you do not restore data from anyone whom you would not trust with root access to the server.

To display a sortable and searchable list of all modules and whether they are available in Restricted Restore, click Restore Modules Summary. This includes any custom modules located in the “/var/cpanel/perl/Whostmgr/Transfers/Systems/” directory.

If the site is not reachable and the server is online, this should be the address of the server that contains the account.
