Store a Backup file remotely  Print this Article

You can also use the Full Backup interface to log in to a remote computer via FTP/SCP and store the backup files there.

To remotely store a backup file:

  1. Select Remote FTP Server, Remote FTP Server (passive mode transfer), or Secure Copy (SCP) from the Backup Destination menu.
  2. Enter the remote server's information in the text boxes that appear when you select the backup destination.
  3. Click Generate Backup.

You will receive an email after the process is complete.

note Notes:

  • This feature is intended for advanced users.
  • You cannot use a full backup to restore your site via the cPanel interface. You must download and decompress the file prior to restoration. After you decompress the file, you can upload and restore the individual pieces of your account that are contained within the full backup.
