  1. Login to cPanel: Go to and login to your cPanel account using your username and password.

  2. Navigate to phpMyAdmin: In cPanel, scroll down to the Databases section and click on the "phpMyAdmin" icon.

  3. Select the database: In the phpMyAdmin interface, select the database you want to restore from the list on the left-hand side of the page.

  4. Click "Import": Once you've selected the database, click on the "Import" tab at the top of the page.

  5. Choose file: Under "File to import," click on the "Choose File" button and select the backup file that you want to restore. This file should be in .sql format.
