Using S3 Compatible storage - Restore

I want to switch from SSH backup destination S3 compatible storage for my cpanel backups via WHM. Configuring the destination for Wasabi is easy enough. The destination validates as well.

When I have to restore an account, I usually sftp in to the backup destination sftp -oPort=22 [email protected] from the server to restore on and GET the backup archive I want to use and then restore.

Does cPanel provide a method retrieve backup archives from S3 compatible destinations so I can restore a backup or is this left to me to figure out on my own?

Any thoughts on a method to retrieve backup archives from S3 compatible destinations for restore?

I found that I can install s3fs-fuse via yum to mount the remote cloud bucket:

Seem as easy to do to as getting backup archives from sFTP. It would be nice if the restore screen had an option to restore from backup destination though.

Hey there! You do have to get the files over from the backup system to your server somehow. The rest can happen through WHM. There's some more details on this process here:

but let me know if any of that isn't clear.
