(Home >> Backup)

This set of features allows you to create backups of your server’s configuration and content. You can use these backups at a later time to restore data on your server. 

  • Always create backup files of all of the information on the server. You cannot recover deleted files.
  • To run a backup successfully, you must have at least twice the amount of free space as the existing backups use in the configured backup partition on your server. This is because cPanel & WHM will not remove old backup files until the new backup process finishes.
  • In some rare instances, backup processes may hang indefinitely. If you experience this problem, we recommend that you use the /usr/local/cpanel/bin/is_script_stuck script to monitor and kill these processes.
