    When someone downloads a backup of their data from within CPanel, does that also include their mysql databases?

    So, are you planning it to fix it so it includes the database files
    in the next cpanel updates?

    I'm sure it could be automated with:

    [b:e192a31463]mysqldump --all-databases --compress & file[/b:e192a31463]

    I use this on our server, without problems.

    You may want to use --lock-tables and --flush-logs too...
