  5. On Remote server /PathToRemoteBackup/MyBackup (where /PathToRemoteBackup is whatever cPanel's backup is set to in WHM)
  6. Confirm that the following directories exist and create if necesscary:

  7. In WHM, set everything up the way you usually would bu make sure the setting restore only is checked.
