    Hello. I just start using WHM and I'm very new in this theme. The sysadmin before me create monthly backup procedure with WHM > Backup > Backup Configuration. It makes full server backup to /backup folder. The sysadmin every month created gziped file of this backup and sent some link to my manager so manager could download this gzipped file. I wonder, how it's possible. Hope anybody can help me with this.
    P.S. "Ask this sysadmin" is not an option.

    Hello,

    You'd need to use a utility such as SFTP or Rsync to download the archives to your local computer if you want to avoid accessing cPanel for each account to download them individually. You could use an application such as FileZilla to access the server via SFTP as "root" and download the archives from the server's /backup/ directory.

    Thank you.
