    I am new to cPanel, and need to back up our organization's werb server.

    Is there a best time to do a backup?
    Does it result in latency on the website?
    How long does it take?

    Any suggestions for a newbie? We have dedicated space on our server to back up the site.

    Any help is much appreciated!

    Thanks.

    the best time to do backups is when your server is at the LESS busy time of the day or evening or earily morning or latenites

    you ll have to watch your loads to tell that..
    i do mine around 2am


    time to take to backup?

    that depends on how many clients you got and how much space there using

    can take 20mins to 3hours just depends
