How to take a backup of your site from cPanel

In order to generate a backup of your website from cPanel, follow these steps:


1. Log in to cPanel.

2. Under the 'Files' section, select 'Backups'.


3. Under Full Backup, click on 'Download a Full Account Backup'.

  4. On the next page, select the Home Directory option from the Backup Destination drop-down menu.

       If you wish to receive an email notification after the backup is complete, enter an email address under the email address section.




  5. Click 'Generate Backup'.


   This will generate the site back up as a tar.gz file inside of your home directory. You can then download the backup via cPanel, FTP or SSH.
