Error when doing a restore from Vesta

Hi,

I’m trying to move a server from Vesta over to Hestia. Normally it just works, but for some reason I’m getting an error this time:

The .tar file file does have accounts.tar.gz in:

…and when you look in that file, it has what I would expect:

I can’t work out what I’m doing wrong?

Thanks!

Hi

Place the backup in /backup (if the folder doesnt exist, create it), then restore it from there.

Thanks. But can’t it be in the folder I have backups set to?

It all exists in there ok:

(FWIW I’m also running this command from /backup-vesta)

Interestig, that worked. So why can’t I set a different backup path, and restore from it? Doesn’t it just take the value from the backup store path, and use that? I renamed the folder as I’m running urbackup as well on the server, and this uses the BACKUP folder, which seems to confuse some of the system stuff due to being an uppercase version of the /backup folder Hestia comes with)

Thanks! At least its extracting now :slight_smile:
