    Ok here is the deal. Had a server that was hacked thru and exploit in a older application that was on the box which required the hosting company to re-provision the box.

    I made backups of all the domains that were on the box and had them stored off site. When he provision was over I created the domains and pulled in the backups.

    Imagine my horror when thru the control panel it would not let me restore these backups because of some saftey mechanism you all have built in that will not allow the files to be used on the same but reprovisioned machine

    Dump Signature verification failed

    Ok well I read your lengthy instructions on how to backup manually and needless to say that this goes a little above my head. I am lucky in that we only have one domain that is remaining to be a pain. As I spent about 24 hours putting back online traditional backups aka FTP

    Now is their anyway to extract the backup file so that I can just recover the domains files I already have the e-mail and Mysql stuff recovered. Or can someone help me figure out how to use psarestore and please tell me where this backup program hides the backup files becasue I swear i have been in every directory on the server as su and can not find them. I resorted to manually uploading them to where I could find them.

    But again either or need to extract them localy with my windows machine and upload them via ftp or I need help in restoring the archive manually onthe linux box

    When I do run the psarestore command from the command line I get this

    /usr/local/psa/bin/psarestore -f grafartx.com_2005.12.01_01.15 -s shellmap.file -m ipmap.file


    Attempt to connect to MySQL server ... done


    Checking packages installation ... done


    Dump reader error: Unable to open input file "grafartx.com_2005.12.01_01.15"

    This file has been uploaded and I can see it via the control panel yet cannot find it anywhere else

    psadump files are mime encoded files. There was another post just recently saying that Winzip 10 is able to open/read the psadump files after they are renamed to extension .mime

    Otherwise what has been done in the past is to use a mime decoder program, instructions can be found by using the forum search function on phrase: "psadump AND mime"
