cPanel’s recent update has included a new option for restoring files. Now you can restore any file from your local backup easily. In this article, we’ll show you can restore a file from backups in cPanel.
Make sure you have saved backups
This process only works if you have already saved one or more backups locally using cPanel’s automatic backups. To check if you have the automatic backups feature enabled, log into WHM and search for Backup Configuration. From here, you can easily check to see if the process is active. If not, you can enable it from here and wait for your first backup to run.

Click Restore This Version for the version of the file you want to restore (you may have one or more)
