    I've had a hosting reseller account for years with access to WHM and cPanel. I only used WHM for the bare basis of setting up accounts and that's it so I'm not really familiar with much else about what it can do.

    This weekend, my host (from which I resell) mysteriously, unexpectedly, and stupidly reverted every account (domain/website) on the server to a backup made more than five months ago. Bad news! If I were so lucky as to have all accounts reverted back to the latest state, I was wondering if I had any options for saving my own backups of everything from WHM? If so, will saving backups of all accounts/domains in WHM also save backups of all files within those domains, essentially backing up every website? If so, can somebody just point me in the right direction so I can read more details in the documentation files.

    This functionality is not yet available. You can vote in favor of us implementing this functionality by visiting this feature request at:

    Presently, you must login to each cPanel user's account individually to download backups. Full Site backups can only be restored by root users at this time.
