    Hello!
    shortly i should reinstall my operating system and cpanel vps (cause rootkit)
    Now I wonder, what is the most correct procedure to create and restore a backup of:
    -Accounts
    -Hostname
    -Nameservers
    -Package Configurations and Settings
    also if there is a way to make a backup of the current configuration apache / php.
    To be more clear i need an exactly copy of actual system. Backup will be restore on same machine (so same ips)
    Thank you very much for your reply

    Hello :)

    1. You can backup your accounts using the backup feature available in Web Host Manager.

    2. The hostname and name servers are configured during the initial setup of the server, so a backup is not required.

    3. Your packages are stored in:

    /var/cpanel/packages

    You can backup this directory and restore it as needed.

    4. The steps to save a custom EasyApache profile are available at:

    EasyApache: How To Save Custom Profiles

    Thank you.
