Creating A Full Backup

A Full Backup will allow you to create an archive of all the files and configurations on your website. You can only use this to move your account to another server, or to keep a local copy of your files. You cannot restore Full Backups through your cPanel interface.

  1. Click on the Download or Generate a Full Backup button.
  2. Set the following:
    • Backup Destination - Select the location where you want to save the backup copy. Your choices include:
      • Home Directory
      • Remote FTP Server
      • Remote FTP Server (Passive mode transfer)
      • Secure Copy (scp) - NOTICE! If you choose the Secure Copy (scp) option, continue with the "FTP/SCP Settings," otherwise, move on to Step 3 below.
