Using Installatron to Backup your Website
If you have installed your websites CMS from Installatron you can create backups of that from Installatron. These backups can be used to restore the site to a previous state if required.
To back-up your website using Installatron, first you need to login to your cPanel control panel.
From the first Overview screen, under the Software/Services section click on Installatron Applications Installer.
Here you will see your installed applications. Applications can be accessed, updated, edited, backed-up, cloned, and uninstalled.
Tick the box next to your application and click the Backup button.
Enter a Label name to identify your sites backup and click Backup.
You will then see a progress bar while the backup is created. Depending on the size of the website, this may take some time. Once the backup has completed, your backup can be located under the My Backups option at the top of the page.
