Please send me a full backup. The backup through cPanel is insufficient and doesn't provide all files.


Let me know if you are able to provide me with a backup.

Hello, In order to complete that request we would need to verify your account. We can not do this over our support center due to security risk as these questions are public. Please contact our support department to be provided with a backup. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Best Regards, TJ Edens

Hello Vinny, Thanks for the question. You can actually backup and get the files directly following the tutorial provided for you in Backing Up Your Website. If you're looking to get the database data, you can also export your database using PHPmyAdmin. If the database is larger than 50 MB, then you will need to submit a ticket request to the live technical support team. If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

Hello Itsacrazyworld, Thanks for the question. If you have created a full cPanel backup then you can generally find the file named as "backup..." with a date and time appended using the ".tar.gz" extension. You will not be able to do a full cPanel restore yourself, if you are on a shared server. Please notify our live technical support team, and they can take care of that for you. You will need to have uploaded the full cPanel backup file into your current hosting. If you have any further questions, please let us know. Regards, Arnel C.

Hello, Sorry to hear about your problem with the restore request. In order for us to do anything about we would need to know who you are, then we can manually ADD your request. However, if you wish to do it yourself, then you can contact live technical support. Since it is a restore issue and you are trying to modify or add to an existing request, I would advise that you contact them through phone or chat so that they can immediately edit your request. Restorations from backup are time sensitive, so you should contact them immediately. You will need to verify the account with either the last 4 digits of the credit card on the account, or the Account Management Panel (AMP) password. Regards, Arnel C.
