(WHM >> Home >> Backup >> Configuration File Rollback)


This feature allows you to restore a configuration file for Apache, Pure-FTP or ProFTP, and the nameserver (named or  nsd ) daemons. This is useful when the current configuration for any of these daemons does not work.

Configuration files

The following table lists the configuration files that you can roll back:

File locationDescriptionType of server daemon
/usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.confApacheweb server
/etc/named.confnamedDNS server
/etc/nsd.confNSDDNS server
/etc/pure-ftp.confPure-FTPFTP server
/etc/proftp.confProFTPFTP server


The interface only displays buttons for the configuration files of your server's installed daemons.

Restore configuration files

To restore the configuration files, perform the following steps:

  1. Click the button that corresponds to the configuration file that you wish to restore. The interface will display the desired server daemon's configuration file.


     You cannot edit the file from the interface.

  2. Use the < and > buttons to select the desired backup file.
    • The interface displays the file's version number, date, and time between the navigation buttons.
  3. Click Restore.
