How can I download a cpanel backup file?

To download a cpanel backup file, follow the following steps:

  1. Click on the Backup button on the Cpanel home page.
  2. Click on the Daily, Weekly, or Monthly backup file to download the entire system backup for the indicated time, or click on the link underneath the required area to download an SQL, Alias, or Filter backup file. Note: To download any previous stored backups, click on the Generate/Download a Full Backup link, and click on any backup that is listed.
  3. Save the file to disk. Note for Windows users: This file is in .tar.gz format (a GZIP archive file that contains a TAR archive file). This is a common archive format used on Unix machines, in the same way that .zip is a common Windows archive format. Most compression utilities should be able to uncompress a .tar.gz file.
