import cpanel backup worth 2.5GB??

Hi. Is there a way to import a cpanel backup that is around 2.5GB??? Been trying to do this for 2 days now but it keps crashing…

How are you doing it? Via the web interface?

How big (free space aswell) is your tmp directory?

This typically happens with large sites when the /tmp directory partition is too small. You nedd tmp space roighly twice or more the size of your backup file.

There IS a workaround however, if this is your problem

mkdir /chroot/home/tmp
chmod -R 776 /chroot/home/tmp

Then edit


Locate the TWO instances of


and change them to


Then run

service iworx restart

That should fix the problem if if this is indeed the issue.
