Is it possible to restore a backup and give the server a new name so it doesn’t overwrite the current server?
Sorry, I don’t believe there’s a way to do that.
However, you can clone an existing domain by going into Server Configuration -> Clone Virtual Server, in case you’re just looking to make a copy of a domain.
Or, if you needed to access some files from the backup archive, you could always just untar it in a temp directory, and then access the files… you can untar it with “tar zxvf domain.tar.gz”.
I guess I could clone the server first (to new name) and then restore the live from a backup. I untared a backuip to take a look and it was organized in a strange way. 30+ folders of numbers and the files seem to be scattered throughout.
Is there a way to open the backup tar.gz and maintain the website directory structure?
Thanks in advance.
Problem was with Stuffit Expander. (program used to open the .tar file) Used this, http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/14503/gui-tar, and it worked like a charm.
