When you are in need of a quick backup of your website’s home directory you can generate one by going to the cPanel > Backup interface.
Once you have a backup on your local device, you need to uncompress the backup to interact with its contents. The typical contents of your backup includes the following files:
- All of the files that you own.
- Files that you do not own but can access.
Note: Backup files do not include files from your /home directory that you do not own and cannot access.
