    Can you make a full account backup?

    Even better, do you have shell SSH access?

    If the host hasn't restricted system calls, you could just
    run a script to execute a "tar" command and dump the
    archive in your home directory.

    Foregoing the above, the next easiest thing would be to
    just download all your files. This could be done from the web
    based file manager but is a whole lot easier to do from FTP.

    Using a cronjob:

    cd /home/ACCOUNT/public_html/a-addondomaincom; tar -czvf file.tar.gz

    where ACCOUNT is my cpanel user name
    a-addondomaincom - the addon domain folder

    I want to make a back-ul of an addon domain.

    Is the command good ?

    Request your web hosting provider to upgrade you to the X3 theme. The X theme is deprecated and no longer supported or maintained. The X3 theme will give you access to a more advanced File Manager that may give you the feature(s) you want.

    Ask your host to provide the backup of the desired directory for you. They can tar it and place it in the accounts home directory.
