    I've looked through the documentation and can see how to set up the backups but it doesn't tell me what exactly is included in the backup? Mail, stats, MySQL dbs etc? Does anybody know exactly what's backed up?

    As far as I know does it include all (Mails, Stats, Settings, Data..) except the mySQL Databases. But this can be downloaded separately..

    backups in /home/backup/cpbackup/daily contain the mysql database and all the necessary stuff for a correct restore, I think...

    Yes, everything is backed up... everything in the /home directories -- as well as mysql databases.

    According to the WHM news..

    [quote:daf3ddb46a]Full Backup in cPanel You can now download a full backup of a site from cPanel. This includes everything needed to restore the account in the event of data loss. You can also choose to have the backup ftped to a remote server.
    (5.3.0 build 91 EDGE or later only) [/quote:daf3ddb46a]

    Don't mean to dig this up, but does anyone know how to RESTORE the full backups (not home backup) created in a user's CPanel (not whm)?

    The structure of the gzipped file is as follows, so it can't just be un-gzipped:

    backup-4.29.2003_16-21-03_username\logs
    backup-4.29.2003_16-21-03_username\mysql
    backup-4.29.2003_16-21-03_username\homedir
    backup-4.29.2003_16-21-03_username\va
    backup-4.29.2003_16-21-03_username\vf
