use vesta v-restore-user

Today I came across a solution that I was looking for about 3 days.  I, being new to Ubuntu Linux was unknown to how to do some of the basic stuff that you do in Ubuntu.  While working with vestacp for a client, i needed to restore to a new server.

Here is the original instructions from https://vestacp.com/docs/#how-to-migrate-user-to-another-server:

How to migrate user to the new server

1. Make user backup on the old server. In this example we will use admin as the reference.

v-backup-user admin

2. Copy tarball to the new server and place it in the /home/backup directory

scp /home/backup/admin.2014-01-14.tar new-server:/home/backup/

3. Restore backup on the new server

v-restore-user admin admin.2014-01-14.tar

If you want to restore data under another user name, simply rename archive. If user name doesn’t exist on the server, account will be created automatically.

mv /home/backup/admin.2014-01-14.tar /home/backup/newuser.2014-01-14.tar
v-restore-user newuser newuser.2014-01-14.tar

I was going throughout the tutorial from the vestacp website but had issues running the v-restore-user admin admin.2014-01-14.tar command to restore the data.

This is how I solved it:

  1. I changed directory to the /home/backup folder.
  2. Then I went and did the full location command: /usr/local/vesta/bin/v-restore-user admin admin.2014-01-14.tar

This is how I got this command to work.

I don’t know why, but after trying to run the command under the bin folder it didn’t worked.

Any ideas or comments why this happens leave them in the comments area.

Update:

Restore Backup

cd /.../backup/

Download the backup file.

wget --ftp-user=[USERNAME] --ftp-password=[PASSWORD] ftp://[FTP]/[FILE].tar

Restore the backup.

v-restore-user [VESTAUSER] [FILENAME]
