    It is possible to do a full backup using FTP: WHM accounts + site web files + site Mysql databases ?

    If it's possible, how to do ?

    Thanks a lot

    Are you asking about using a FTP client to download, for example, MySQL databases? Or are you asking how you can set WHM to store backups remotely via FTP?

    In WHM, go to Backup and then click on Configure Backup. You can enter the details for the FTP server and how to login to FTP on that screen. You can also set WHM to store backups on the remote server via FTP on this screen.

    This will back up all user settings, files and databases. However, server configurations (e.g. Tweak Settings, EasyApache Profiles) are not backed up with FTP backups.

    The problem is I bought a reseller plan from webhost provider and only them as Admin can have access to backup feature on WHM not us. The host provided us a WHM cpanel but I don't see the backup option on it. They said I have to backup all sites one at a time from cpanel. This is pain in the neck and why can't people design something easier in whm for reseller account holder? Thanks.
