    Default Can I Set up a Cron Job for Backups

    Is it possible to use the CPanel Cron Manager to set up an automatic backup of the site? This would be instead of manually using the CPanel Backup tool. If it's possible, what would I enter under "command to run" in the Cron Manager?

    Yes, I looked in the CPanel documentation (such as it is)...

    Thanks in advance!

    Your sites are automatically backed up nightly here. However you should still backup your site locally if your data is important to you. You should not set the cron up to do backups, to hard on the servers to allow sites to run more than one backup per day. You could run this on a dedicated server if you liked. But you do have nightly and weekly backups here already.
