    export the mysql databases ( either through mysql/mysqladmin or phpmyadmin ) and store on your pc ( they are just text files anyway )

    backup the /etc/http.d/httpd.conf file and any other .conf which it loads
    backup your /etc/php.ini file , /etc/php.d/*.ini or any other .ini loaded.

    These are the main ones.

    as for actual web files, you could simply go to the webroot ( or each one if neccesary )

    tar zcf webbackup.tar ./*

    this archives all the data from the current directory down
    you can then download this file at your convenience. to restore, upload to same directory and
    tar xzf webbackup.tar

    It backs up mySQL and Website files, which can then be restored using the WHM restore feature. (All accounts that are added to wHM are backed up, along with the subdomain, dns etc stuff).

    it is easy to use a cPanel backup system, but sometimes you will get a high server loads
