How do I backup my website?


I need to make backups. How do I make a complete 100% backup of my website. I need all email accounts, database, passwords and ect.

I did cpanel--> Backup Wizard --> Backup --> Full backup --> Selected Home Dictionary --> Generate Backup

Did I do it right?

Then download the backup you generated to a home computer. Any host should be able to have you upload the full backup and they will restore it for you. I would do a manual backup also like taking all of your files and dumping your database and download those.


Not sure about email though since the backup system on our servers backup emails for us anyways but the average customer does not have access to the software we use to do it.

Thanks for all the replies. It really helped.

Is Full Home Dictionary Backup enough? Does it include all the database and emails?

Or will I have to individually backup all the database too?

Individually depending if the backup program does it.

It would not include emails. You may have to get a custom script for this

Cool, did the backup, I just hope I never have to use it though =)

How often do you guys end up using the backup?

I personally back up my account twice per day aka once every 12 hours while I backup clients accounts once per day standard

Wow that too much work, in my opinion.

Can this task be automated?

Yes, make sure you download it though. The full cPanel backup includes everything (emails, files, databases, etc.) which any cPanel host should be able to restore if needed.
