Backup - How Do I?


Recommended Posts

I'm totally new to this, so please bare with the simple question :)

I was told to "log into cpanel (access info in the client area here) and then click "backups" to run a full backup.."

I've searched and haven't had much luck finding the "cpanel" - can someone direct me to where I can locate this to perform my backup?

Thanks!

Great, thank you - worked!

I'm assuming i click on "Full Backup" among the backup options?

I'd like to do two things:

A local backup (my computer)

A remote backup (will be setup by tomorrow)

For the local backup, if I do select Full Backup (assuming it's the right choice), what happens when I select "Home Directory"? Will I be able to create a directory on my laptop?

Apologies if this is all really obvious.

automated nightly stuff is setup through WHM which you (on invision host) will not have access to I don't think. when I posted the cpanel link I didn't realize you were on invision host.

however they themselves should be doing it automatically.

iirc they do nightlies, someone please correct me if I am wrong.

Yes, they are doing it nightly. But with my backup plan, it's important to me to have a daily local backup.

well there may be a way, its offsite but available to you. using codeguard

https://www.codeguard.com/

you provide it an ftp access and it takes a daily that you can restore fully or by file.

so while not a local backup its one thats available to you to restore on demand if needed.

it will cause a little bit of load though, no not sure if its enough to trip another shutoff.
