Add website to Site Backup (Self-Managed)

You can backup individual websites on your server using Site Backup.

Site Backup only backs up the content of the website contained in the root directory. This does not include databases hosted in other directories on your server or any other content. We always recommend keeping additional backups of your server.

  1. In your My Server control panel, click the Backups tab.
  2. In the Site Backup area, click Manage.
  3. If another message displays, click Manage again.
  4. Click +Website.
  5. Complete the on-screen fields, and then click Next.

    Site Backup uses either FTP or SSH to download the website's files. To let it connect, you have to have these services enabled, the correct ports open, and appropriate users created for the service.

  6. Schedule your backup.
