How to restore the Cron Jobs using JetBackup 5

This article describes how to restore a Cron Job from a WHC backup.

The JetBackup Restoration tool is available by default with Web Hosting and Reseller Hosting plans. If you are using other services, this tool may not be available to you. Contact our support team for additional information.
This tool will override the existing cron jobs if any. Please consider checking first the existing cron jobs (in cPanel > Advanced > Cron jobs). In order to have a copy of the existing cron jobs, you may simply copy and paste them in a text editor, or you may run a “Backup on demand” if it is offered with your hosting plan.
