WHM’s Backup Configuration interface (Home » Backups » Backup Configuration) allows you and your users to store backup files in locations that you configured with the Additional Destinations option. This includes the following destinations:
- Amazon S3™
- A local directory
- Custom locations
To restore backups from these locations, users must transfer the backup file to their servers before they can restore the backups.
How to transfer the backup file
To transfer a backup file from a remote location to your server, perform the following steps:
- Use your preferred tool to access the additional destination that you created with the Additional Destinations option in WHM’s Backup Configuration interface(Home » Backups » Backup Restoration). For example, you can use an FTP client to access an FTP destination.
