Default Backup in cPanel - Important

The Backup area allows you to download the daily, weekly, or monthly backup file of your entire web site, or a particular MySQL, alias, or filter backup file. If your computer crashes, or your personal backups are destroyed, these files allow you to recover your site in a convenient manner (you could also use FTP to download each file, but it would take much longer as the files are not compressed).

How often a backup is created is decided by your web host. Contact your hosting administrator for more details.

Important: You should keep your own backup copy of your web site as well. Do not rely solely on the backup provided by your web host. Having multiple backups in different locations provides security against permanently losing information.

Note: A complete web site backup file includes everything - from web pages to images to scripts to access logs. A large site will have a large backup file, and will take some time to download.

To download a backup file:

Click on the Backup button on the home page.

Click on the Daily, Weekly, or Monthly backup file to download the entire system backup for the indicated time, or click on the link underneath the required area to download an SQL, Alias, or Filter backup file. Refer to Generating a backup if you need to generate a backup first before downloading it.

Note: To download any previous stored backups, click on the Generate/Download a Full Backup link, and click on any backup that is listed.

Save the file to disk.

Note for Windows users: This file is in .tar.gz format (a GZIP archive file that contains a TAR archive file). This is a common archive format used on Unix machines, in the same way that .zip is a common Windows archive format. Most compression utilities should be able to uncompress a .tar.gz file.

Generating Backups of Your Website

You can generate a backup at any time. This is useful if you have just made some changes to the site and you do not want to have to wait for the routine backup (usually daily or weekly) before downloading the backup.

To generate a backup:

Click on the Backup button on the home page.

Click on the Generate/Download a Full Backup link.

Click on the location for the backup from the Backup Destination drop-down list. The following locations are available:

Home Directory - Saves the backup in the public_html level of your site.

Remote Ftp Server - Saves the backup on a specified remote FTP server.

Remote Ftp Server (passive mode transfer) - Saves the backup on a specified remote FTP server that will only accept passive (PASV) mode FTP transfer. Please refer to your hosting administrator or the remote FTP server if you have questions about passive mode transfer.

Enter your e-mail address in the Email Address field. An e-mail will be sent to this address when the backup has completed.

Enter the FTP address, user name, and password in the Remote Server, Remote User, and Remote Password fields if you are saving the backup file at a remote location.

Click on the Generate Backup button. An e-mail will be sent to the specified address when the backup has finished and can be downloaded.

Restoring Your Site From a Backup

In the unlikely event that your web site or other files are deleted from your web host's servers, you can restore the web site using your most recent backup file.

To restore your web site from a backup file:

Click on the Backup button on the home page.

Click on the Browse... button next to the relevant area that you want to restore.

Search for and double-click on the relevant backup file (in .gz format).

Click on the Upload button.

Note: You may need to wait for a few minutes to upload and restore a large web site file.
