    Hello,


    I have a VPS with root acces to my WHM/cPanel... I want to make a full backup on my local home-computer...
    How can I do this as simple as possible? I have really no idea about doing this...

    It would be perfect, if whm/cpanel generates me a .rar-file(ftp, email, mysql-data and everything else...)
    Could someone give me a suggestion? I havent perfect linux knowledge.. Which possibilities are there existing?

    Hello :)

    You should consider using account backups because full system images are not supported. One option would be to setup a FTP server on your local computer and enable remote backups via FTP:

    Backup Configuration

    The following post should also help you get started:

    Copy Server Configuration

    Thank you.
