We are going to see how we can make this type of copies:
a) Copies manuals. These copies we can do them at any time acceding to Cpanel, to Applications Web, My Applications, puncturing in the manager of contents that we want to endorse and puncturing in the option Backup and Restore that there is above to the right.
b) automatic Backup copy. Entering within the options of ours cms installed the section To publish details, in the part of down we will see a picture with the options to program our backup copy (daily, weekly, monthly or customized.)
NOTE: If you have a VPS and you want to have on this copy system and our installer of applications in a single click, you will have to engage to the product Installer of Applications from your zone of clients in the section of accessories and addons of your servant.

Also when we are going to make an update of our manager of contents (Joomla, WordPress, Prestashop. Moodle, etc.) and we want to make sure that in case the same does not come out well, we can return to the previous state of our Web. With the installer of applications we will be able to make a backup copy and restoration very easily since from the same interface our site in a few will be able to be recovered clicks.
In cPanel we can basically realise of native form two different backup copies, one is backup complete and another one backup of the directory Home (in addition to loose copies of Bases de Datos).
First, backup complete complete Backup copy (full backup), is only possible that it is recovered by our Technical Support since supposes a complete copy including the user of cPanel, passwords, configurations of the account, etc., whereas second is easily recovered through the option To recover a backup copy of beginning directory.
These backup copies will keep in the /home directory from ours hosting. In order to lower a copy of the data base you only must select the one that you want to lower of the list To unload a basic backup copy of data of MySQL. As much the copy of the Home as the copy of the BBDD is of immediate unloading and they do not occupy disc space. Once unloaded we observed that one is a compressed file and it is important to remember that they must be recovered WITHOUT DECOMPRESSING.
The restoration is as simple as to accede to the corresponding section, p.ej. To recover a basic backup copy of data of MySQL, to puncture in the button To examine, we selected the suitable local file and we make click in Loading.
Following the weight of the file this process will be of a few seconds to some minutes. It has patience.
IMPORTANT: we must remember that the copy of the HOME corresponds to the complete copy of All the archives of ours hosting, including therefore the e-mails since the copy will recover his hosting as it was at the time of the same.
