Hosting Restoration without content being overwritten

I paid $175 to have my hosting account restored, and then I receive this message -

How must I know where to move the files too?

Re: Hosting Restoration without content being overwritten



It depends on what was restored. You need to examine the file in your File Manager on cPanel and see what they managed to get back for you. Usually they're able to get back both the content files and any databases you had. Then you need to place the restored files in the appropriate folders and connect them to their databases. 


Yes, it can be rather complicated but there are tons of tutorials online that spell it out step by step or you can look for a freelance developer to help you out.
