    Is it possible to download cPanel's backup script for using it locally. I would really like to use it for synchronization of local and remote databases.

    Thank you.

    Maybe someone knows the programm/script that would make the same file from local data that I could use for "restoration" using cPanel's backup facilities? :eek:

    Go on, have a guess
    Not really sure what you're after. cPanel full backups are just ordinary gzipped tarballs. They're created using /scripts/cpbackup. If you're talking about the end-user cPanel backups through the UI then it's possibly using /scripts/pkgacct to create them and you would use /scripts/restorepkg

    I'm talking about synchronization of sites on local and remote server. I thought would be good to make a backup of files and mysql on the local server and then "restore" it using cpanel's backup facility. hope I'm clear

    You should look into rsync - this is a sync tool you can use. The cpanel scripts are meant to package up the data and move it - not really to sync it.
