    Hi,

    The backup is only account backup and not the other system configuration backup. It will backup all the file necessary to work when restored, other than this it will not backup any csf or yum installed apps..

    Hello,

    The "Backup system files" function will allow you to take a backup of certain assets within the server, including server configurations. This backup however cannot be restored in any automated way. For a complete breakdown of what files are backed up:

    System Backups - Version 68 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    The above article also instructs you on how to include custom directories/files in these backups, such as your CSF configurations should you wish to include that 3rd party software in your backups.
