Program cron backup

asked Nov 23, 2013 in General by yammi (440 points)
Hi there,
 I have a shared hosting with cPanel 11.38  and I  want to create two  crons one to take backups for my home directory, and the other to take a backup of my database. Can anyone please help me do this?

I don’t think you can set up a cron job to backup your databases or your accounts with only a shared hosting account. You can check with your provider if you have backups enabled on your server.
However you can use your cPanel’s Backup Wizard to backup either your entire account or specific parts. Hope this helped
