    Hi,

    I'm new to cpanel. What file/folder should I backup in case something happen to my box? Backup the whole system is not an option here.

    Thank you.

    regards,
    yonez

    If you use the backup option within cpanel, that will backup pretty much everything you need. If you just want to backup the website itself, public_html is the folder that contains it. Of course, if you use any dynamic content, then you probably also have a database which will need to be backed up as well, and there are several ways to do that.
