1. To start a backup, click the Backup Wizard icon that’s in the FILES section of cPanel.

You’ll see this screen:

2. Click on the Back Up button to start the backing up process. 

You’ll be shown a screen where you have the option to choose whether you want a Full Backup (all the files and configurations on your websites) or Partial Backup (home directory, MySQL databases, email forwarders & filters).

To make it easier, back up your entire account and save it to an external hard drive or another secure location.

Once the backup completes, you’ll be able to download it.
