How to create and download or ftp a cPanel backup
You can create a full or partial backup of your cPanel Web Hosting account at any time by logging into your cPanel account. Once logged in, in the search bar type “backup” then click the “backup wizard”
On the first page of the cPanel backup wizard you will need to decide if you want to create a backup or restore a backup. We’re creating a backup so Click “Backup”. by default you cannot restore a cPanel backup on a server if you have a reseller or web hosting account. This needs to be completed by us. You can restore databases and email accounts.
Next, decide what type of backup you want. The full backup can be used to restore your account on another server. A partial backup can be used to download a database or email accounts files. We’re going to create a full backup so, click the “full backup” button.
Generate And Download Backup
On the next page you’re asked where you want to store this backup. Select “home directory” and click create. Once the server has completed the backup it will be located in your home directory ready for download.
Create a full cPanel backup and send it to another server via ftp
The backup system on cPanel also has the ability to package up the account and send the complete .tar.gz to another server, this is useful if your account is large and you’re moving to a new server. Select “remote FTP server”
Enter the remote ftp server details. Most providers don’t block ftp connections for obvious reasons but we have come across a few that utilize a whitelist.
