Posted by David, Last modified by Ashley L on 19 November 2019 05:04 PM

This function will allow you to download all of the files in your home directory. This can be useful to backup the html side of your site. However, it will not backup DNS, mySQL, or other system files and settings.

 Here are the following steps:

  1. To access the Backup Menu, click on the icon above the words "Backup" on the main screen of your cPanel interface
  2. Click on "Download a Home Directory Backup"
  3. Save the file to your computer 

Troubleshooting: Make sure to use a zip program that is compatible with .tar.gz files when unzipping, and zipping the archive or the archive may not work properly.
