Hi Emilio,

Thank you so much for your question. My name is Mario Cano and I would be happy to assist you!

Where will backups be stored on our server? in public_html? or can we configure this path? I asked this because I really have never use this backup option in cpanel?
Great question! The backups are stored locally on the same server within the same cPanel account. To find a backup you can go into the cPanel account in question and then file manager and under /home/username you will see the backups you created in the very bottom with a similar name of "backup-12.23.2018_04-04-46_username.tar.gz"

As for configuring the path I am not sure of that being possible within the cPanel itself. However I believe what you are looking for is backups via WHM which will allow you to create a local backup of any cPanel within that server and also schedule a time and location. Within WHM backups by default, the system saves backup files locally to the /backup directory.

This article above is intended for users who manually want to make a backup within the cPanel and usually can be used as a way to restore a website in case of corruption or when someone is trying to do a cPanel migration.

Let me know of any other questions happy to help you :).

Thanks!
