Backups in cPanel

The backup function allows you to backup, restore and download all your files and databases. It is advisable to backup your files at least once a day so that when your hosts’ servers crashed, you will have an available backup that you can restore.


Clicking on the backups icon, you will get redirected to a page wherein you can generate a full website backup, which includes all the files and databases, email accounts, stats, etc.


You also have the option to download only specific parts (files only, database only, etc). Downloading Home Directory will let you save a copy of all files that are under your account.

Downloading databases will let you save a copy of your database. If you have multiple database in your account, you will need to download each one.


You also have the option to restore individual backups as shown below. If your have backup files of the home directory, you can use the “Restore a Home Directory Backup” upload function. If you want to restore a database, use the Restore a MySQL Database upload function.
