Restore a Script from Command Line (Only For cPanel)

Softaculous allows you to restore a script from command line. Here is the guide: 

  • Use the following command to restore the script :
Root> php /path/to/softaculous/cli.php --restore --file=FILENAME --restore_dir=1 --restore_db=1 --restore_datadir=1 --restore_wwwdir=1 
  • Thats it. You have restored your backup on your server.

Variables

  • In the above command the first parameter should be –restore as this parameter will initiate the restore function.
  • –file=FILENAME – Here FILENAME is the name of the backup file (.tar.gz) to be restored. For eg.: wp.26_45368.2015-11-17_05-26-39.tar.gz
  • –restore_dir=1 – If set to 1, it will restore the installation directory.
  • –restore_db=1 – If set to 1, it will restore the database.
  • –restore_datadir=1 – If set to 1, it will restore the installation’s data directory. This parameter is used only if the script contains the Data Directory
  • –restore_wwwdir=1 – If set to 1, it will restore the installation’s www directory. This parameter is used only if the script contains www directory.
