    I want to make a backup of my website, but i don't understand which options to choose under cpanel backup. Thanks in advance for your help.

    1) Remote Server: Can this be used to backup the files to my local computer so I have a backup if my hosting server gets burned? What info do I put here? If i have a firewall router connected to my lan, does this make a difference?

    2) Remote User/Password: what do i put here (if trying to backup to my local pc with router & lan)?

    Thanks, Jim

    I attached a file of a screenshot of the settings I have that work great. I do not have a seperate drive so I just load everything onto my local machine every 3-4 days and if something happens I format / re upload the files and have WHM take care of the rest.
