There are certain types of software for automated backups but they need to be installed by the root user on the server so you can't do anything in reseller accounts.

It could be done in cpanel with the feature cronjob,many of the function about website management could be realized through cpanel.

Yes, we have a script we use to perform auto whm/cpanel backups everyday or how ever you want to set up a cron job.

No, you do not have to set the script up in the root. All my scripts are on another server that logins to the whm and performs a backup then ftp's the backup to our backup server.

Depending on what exactly you are wanting to backup and to the same server or offsite you can use different software and cron jobs to run it at whatever increments you want.

Generally , many webhosts runs the backup manually , which is stored on either local server or on a remote server. Some web hosts runs the tape backup too so in case some thing crashes they can restore the things. However few Web hosts use latest backup technologies where users have access to back up and restore the solutions.

You can search for it

Would just like to point out that you need to make sure that your off-site location is super reliable, no point in making backups if you cant restore from them later. We use Rackspace Cloudfiles as it ensures there are 3 copies of the files making it super redundant incase our servers go down.

That's a great solution. The only problem I see is that if Rackspace ceases to exist, so do all three of your copies. That's probably unlikely, but spectacular failures of companies has happened.

I maintain backups a bit differently. I have R1Soft backups with daily restore points going back 28 days, and I have a daily cron job that dumps the databases and uses rsync and SSH to backup each account's files & databases to another server. The two servers are in two different data centers, in two different states. With the R1Soft backups, that makes three servers in three different locations, so the redundancy is there.

I have monthly backups that I store at home, but they are less useful than the daily backups. I keep them because the other solutions "auto delete" accounts that are no longer with me.

You must have root access to have automated backups because for this you need to install backup software on server which will be backing up all the data on HDD automatically.

However, you can also do it through cron jobs just like software like WHMCS which emails backup of database every day on your mentioned email address.

I suggest using Bacula it's an open source solution that is easy to use and works really well.

There is a setting in cpanel i believe you can use, but not sure if resellers have the access to it. Also i would also recommend using an offsite servers. You can find many different offsite backup solutions with google (your best friend) Remember when all else fails, google prevails.
