How to Restore Full cPanel Backup via Black Host?
The first method is to restore the full cPanel backup via Black Host. Of course, in order to be able to restore the backup using this method you need to have root access to Black Host which is listening on port 2020. So if your domain is example.com, you can access Black Host via web browser at http://example.com:2020.
Once you log in to Black Host, navigate to Backups and then select Restore a Full Backup. This Black Host feature will allow you to restore specific backup with File.
To restore with file, you must upload the full cPanel backup file to the following directory:
/backup

Restore Full cPanel Backup via command line. Yes, this is another method which some server admins find much easier than the first one. For this method you need to have SSH access to the server. Connect to your Linux server via SSH and run the following command as root:
/bh/restore example
Of course, you need to replace example with the actual cPanel username or filename.tar.gz for the account you want to restore. Also, make sure that the full cPanel backup is properly uploaded in the /backup directory on your server before starting the restoration process.
