This tutorial will show you how to backup and restore your server files in Paper Lantern.
This demo assumes you’ve already logged in to cPanel, and are starting on the home screen.
Now let’s learn how to backup our website. Click the “Backup Wizard” icon.
This is the main backup screen where you can backup, or restore the files in your hosting account.
To backup your website, click the “Backup” button.
You have the option of only backing up part of your account…
… or generating a full backup, which we’ll do now. Click the “Full Backup” button.
Select the destination, then click “Generate Backup”.
That’s it! We’ve just created a full backup to the home directory. Note: This does take up space on your hosting account and the backup should be deleted from the server after you have downloaded it. You can use file manager to delete the package.
To download a copy of the backup to your computer, simply click it’s link.
That’s all there is to it!
Restoring files is just as easy. Click the “Backup Wizard” icon again.
Then click the “Restore” button.
Choose what type of restore you want to do… in this case, let’s restore the “Home Directory”.
Locate the Home Directory backup…
Then click “Upload”.
The files have been restored!
