How to generate a full website backup?

A full backup is a backup of all of your files, e-mail, databases, etc. To run a full backup, you can not download the full backup right away. The backup takes time to perform and the server will send you an email once the backup is ready to download. Below are steps to requesting the backup to be performed.
1. Click Backups
2. Click Generate/ Download Full Backup
3. In the drop-down menu, select Home Directory
4. In the box to the right of Email Address, type the email address where you will receive a notification once the back up is done.
5. Leave the rest of the settings blank.
6. Click Generate back up.
7. This will generate the back up for you and place the tar.gz file inside of your Home Directory.
8. You can now download the backup via cPanel / FTP / SSH.
