Hello,

One of our clients has created a backup inside his directadmin user panel on another host and wants us to restore this backup on one of our servers.

Is there an easy way to import this backup? This backup was created on another server, with a different IP etc.

Regards

If it's a user backup and no admin or reseller backup I've done that a short while ago for somebody.
First create an account for the user.
Then put the backup in /home/username/backups
Then login to the useraccount, select the backup and restore options.

Big chance the password the user used on the previous host is also restored. For ip's, I don't remember anymore what happened, but it's easy to check if they are correct. And if neede change them afterwards.
That's the fastest way to restore them, without having to rename stuff.
