The Purposes of the Account Restore Interface in WHM
The Account Restore interface, as the name suggests, appears, in WHM, during the process of account restoration, if and when it is initiated.
It is used for the following purposes:
- Firstly, the Account Restore interface is used to display the status and detailed progress of the process of account restoration in WHM.
- Secondly, the interface is also used to display any Warnings that are generated during the process of account restoration, enabling them to be addressed and/or resolved in the process.
A detailed look into the Account Restore Interface
The process of account restoration, once initiated, can be observed and monitored using the Account Restore Interface.
The Interface displays the following in course of the process of account restoration:
- In Progress – Once the process is initiated the Interface displays the status and progress of the process. The /usr/local/cpanel/bin/view_transfer script can be run so as to watch the process through the command line. This process can be Paused as well, if required, using the Interface.
- Completed – Once the process of transfer and restoration of the Account and all the related data is successful executed, the top part if Account Restore Interface displays the message, ‘Completed’ to indicate the same.
- Restoration Log – Along with the single word, there are displayed a set of links below the word ‘Restore’. These comprise the restoration log of the given Account. This log can be used so as to trace any Warnings displayed or Items skipped during the restoration process. Once these have been identified, they can be addressed and resolved as well using the links displayed. The total number of these warnings are listed below each respective account link.
The following are the warnings that may be listed and displayed after the process of account restoration and need to be resolved or looked into –
- Altered – This refers to files that have been modified driving the process of restoration due to ensuing conflicts.
- Failed – These refer to the files that Failed to transfer or restore due to lack of a suitable IP address availability.
- Dangerous – The files listed under this header are deliberately not restored by the system as they are considered to be Dangerous to the stability of the entire system.
- Skipped – These items are not marked as Dangerous but are nevertheless Skipped or not restored as they do not comply with the security specifications.
- Warning – These are indicators generated by the system due to ‘non-fatal’ problems arising during the process of restoration.
Along with all of the various aforementioned sections the Account Restore Interface in WHM also displays a Summary section that lists any Severe Warnings generated in the course of the restoration.
