Backup through cPannel
You will receive the option to back up all, or some components of your website. It’s best to keep backups of everything. If you take a complete backup, then individual components (email accounts, databases, files) can be extracted if needed.
Run your backup.
You may choose to set notifications for the completion of the backup. You may set the backup to be stored on your server, or may configure a remote backup by FTP if you have a storage space available.
When your backup is complete, you can navigate back to cPannel home (home icon in top left) and, from the Files pane, select Backups. This time, you’ll see your most recent backup.
You can also click File Manager (also in Files pane). When you do, select Home Directory.
