    Ask your host

    Upload your backups as .tar - and then give them an email, ask to them to untar the files. After all, you're paying for a service right?

    It's actually very possible if your server doesn't have system() blocked off. Take a look through the php manual (@ for the system() call, then modify it to do what you need it to do
