Hello guys,

I'd like to make an automated backup of our cPanel server's files and databases. I'm aware that a single tar.gz file can contain both file and database backups. In addition, I'd like to take the website file and database and store them separately on our server.
Can you guys please tell me is it possible to do like this?

Not sure what you mean exactly but you can backup cpanel accounts to a remote server yes. The best way to backup your accounts is with the plugin jetbackup. It is only $5.95 per month.

Making a backup of your website files along with the database can be made in different ways. You can store the backup locally on your computer, in a different directory on your server or you can transfer it on a remote server. There are many choices including the choice that some hosting providers include a daily and weekly backup in their plans which is an additional backup for you.

Using rsync in whm/cpanel you will never disappoint.
If you don't have whm, you can use backup option in cpanel, it still provides you enough functions to backup as you want.

You can also use MegaCLI as well.

Yes it is possible to backup to a different server using cPanel.


To create a full backup:

1. Select Backup from the first page.
2. Select Full Backup from the second page.
3. Select the destination for the backup files. You have 3 options:

You can store the files in your home directory on your web server by selecting Home Directory from the pull-down menu.
cPanel can also utilize FTP or SCP to store the files to a remote machine. To do this, fill in the appropriate information and select the method for file transfer from the pull-down menu.
If you wish to download the file to your computer, skip to the next step.

4. Ensure you specify an email address here. By doing so the backup process will email you once it is complete and you won't have to keep coming back to check teh backup process progress.

5. Click Generate Backup.

If FTP or SCP was used, an email will be sent to the email address that you specified at the beginning of the process.
6. To download a copy of the backup file to your computer, click the filename under Backups Available for Download.

I'm not sure what you mean by migration server to server, but if you mean cpanel to cpanel, it's extremely simple to backup all your data and restore it on another cpanel, which means another server.

for automated backup. you need to configure backup first
  • Home »Backup »Backup Configuration
you can set as per your need. also you can setup remote backup location such as S3, FTP, Google Drive, Rsync etc. as soon as your server create backup which you configure in backup configuration setting, will automatically send it to additional backup location you set such as S3 etc.

you can download it and restore it wherever you want.
