Hello

as cPanel user, i enter Backup section and there is:

"Download a MySQL Database Backup"

It instantly downloads mysql backup file.

Im curious if this file was created during daily backup (is outdated) or if always this file is generated at a time when click the link to download it..?

I came into this question multiple times, might be good if on that page is some tooltip to describe this as it can be important in case one need present, not hours outdated backup.

You will not receive outdated backup from daily/weekly/monthly backup archive once you clicked on the database name under Download a MySQL Database Backup option.

It will always create new backup file on the server.

And yea, I do agree with your suggestion about adding some tooltip to describe more details about the backup. (Y)
