How to Take Backups in Webuzo?

Approx. read time : 2 min


This article will help you to Create and Manage all your backup files in Webuzo. It is very simple to create and restore backups in Webuzo. After completing the backup or restore process, the system sends a notification to the Admin email address (if set) with the name of the backup file on success or encountered error(s). 

It is possible to either create a new backup file or restore, delete, or download an existing backup. The backups are stored in /var/webuzo/backup directory. 

Below are the screenshots that show how to create and manage backups from the panel. 


The first step is to navigate. You can access the backup files from Webuzo Enduser Panel > Server Utilities > Webuzo Backup.
