Scheduled backup?

Category: Cpanel

In cPanel, there is a paragraph stating "...These are not automatically scheduled backups. Automatically scheduled backups need to be enabled by the server owner/administrator."

However, I can't find where I can enable the automatically scheduled backups in AMP (Account Management Panel).

Could you tell me where I can enable it?

Hello Patrick77,

Our servers automatically backup any sites under 10GB every 24-36 hours. This is not a setting that is able to be changed in the cPanel. cPanel backups are not able to be scheduled by a tool, but can be done by setting a cron job (scheduled task) with a custom backup script. You can, however, initiate a cPanel backup at any time via the cPanel backup tool. We also have an article here that shows you how to do just that.

I hope this answers your question. If you have any more questions or information specific to the issue please leave a comment below so we can further assist you.

Best Regards,
Scott M
