Hi.
Is possible to backup entire server, including configs and settings for all services/programs?

I have one VM with cPanel, but I would like to re-create it (with some disk space changes, nothing that could affect cpanel or users), and restore entire configuration. Is it possible? If yes, how?
User accounts I know that I can backup and restore easily......but how about everything else?

BTW: is not possible to change actual VM and downtime doesn't matter, I just need to re-create my server and backup/restore entire cpanel/services/accounts.

I am glad you got the answer to this, by default the cPanel backup configuration for automatic backups does not backup to the point you could perform a bare metal restore. This is possible with 3rd party Software or to backup your configuration with the cPconf tool The cpconftool Script | cPanel & WHM Documentation and your accounts with WHM's backup configuration and restore those items once you restore the server, and install the OS.
