    when you restore from backup you need to create username?

    I reinstalled my os and directadmin.
    Before I do I backedup a site that I had.
    after reinstalling I went to admin section to restore but the error says

    Kd-backup-Aug-8-2019-1 is not a valid username

    What exactly should I do to restore this?

    Did you not use the Native Directadmin Admin Backup and restore in the Admin Panel?

    Is this a User backup and not an Admin backup?
    Thanks,

    This looks like a userbackup, should be restored via the user restore function.
    So yes, you have to create a useraccount for this user and then restore this file from there. If it's a real userbackup from DA and not some self made thing.
    At least that's the easiest way.
    Greetings, Richard.
