Backup Wizard (Creating Backups)

The Backup Wizard interface allows you to back up all or part of your website, or to restore it from the most recent backup file.

To access this, go to Backup Wizard in the FILE section in cPanel:

The first screen gives you the option to create or restore a backup file.

Most users will choose "Full Backup" to get all files, emails and databases.  There is also the option to do partial backups and download your files, databases or email settings individually.

When downloading a full backup, you choose where the backup will be saved and can enter an email address to receive a notification when the backup is complete.  The more files you have, the longer the process will take.

Once your backup is complete, it will show available for download on the main Backup Wizard Screen.  We recommend saving a copy of your backups on either a local computer or cloud storage like Dropbox or Google Drive.
