I installed my site on https and now I want to back up the site with softaculous but I am seeing http and https on the application installs.

Which one do I back up?

Thank you

Hello Scoobydoolala,

Thanks for the question about using Softaculous Backup - http or https? I would use the https version if your site is running in HTTPS. The option in the Softaculous installation simply lets the installation setup the application with the HTTPS options set in the configuration files. This way, if you do a restore and you have your SSL certificate valid and active, you do not have go into the configuration and have to enable the SSL configuration.

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.
