You can easily upload a backup of your website by opening your cPanel → File Manager:

And by following this procedure:

Select Upload option at the top-right corner of the File Manager window:

Choose the compressed file that you would like to restore:

NOTE:

  • You can also check the checkmark to overwrite any existing files

After the file has been successfully uploaded, right-click on it and select Extract:

Finally, select the extraction directory (in this example the files were extracted to public_html directory).

That’s it! You are ready to use your files at cPanel!

NOTES:

  • The maximum allowed size for uploading a file using File Manager is 256MB.
  • If you want to upload a bigger file, you can use an FTP client, as there are no size limitations for uploading files.
