Hi There,

After some advice to do with the Full Backup & Partial Backups that you can download via cPanel > Backup.

Could anyone let me know how old for example the database dumps are if you download an sql.gz file from "Download a MySQL Database Backup"?

Is this a dump the server is doing straight away? or does cPanel periodically dump the databases somewhere which then allows you to download them instantly?

Hello,

It generates a new backup for the database when you click on the database name in "cPanel >> Backups".

Thank you.
