How to create backup of your website using CPanel? Tutorial

Postby Softex » 24 May 2015, 15:40

When you have your website hosted with Softex, you will have full access to your Cpanel credentials, which gives you a lot of control over your website including creating downloadable complete backup of your website including pages, databases , email boxes and other settings.

Full backup will create a zip file of your account that includes all of your files, databases, email forwarders, and any emails stored on the server. Once the full backup is created in cPanel, you can download the backup to your computer.

VERY IMPORTANT You also need to make sure that there is enough hosting space on your hosting account before making backup , if you your website is using 400 MB then you will need at least other 400 MB of free space within your hosting plan , to save the backup file on it. Backup files are saved within your hosting plan, so it is critical you delete it from file manager, after you download it
