How to Get Your Dedicated Server Backups Restored

Restoring a backup made with the InMotion Backup Manager is done through the Backup Manager interface in cPanel. Backups are created per cPanel account. When you log in to the Account Management Panel (AMP), you will be able to select the specific cPanel account and then use the Backup Management interface to perform the restoration. Dedicated servers come with the Backup Manager. The backup size will vary based on the dedicated server configuration you have purchased.

Backup Manager is required to be added on Shared server and VPS accounts.

Restoring a Backup using the Backup Manager

  1. Login to AMP.
  2. Look for the cPanel account that you want to work with. In the cPanel account, look for the Backup Manager icon, then click on it.
