How to Backup your site with Softaculous?

1. To create a backup of your website, first you need to locate the installed application within the Softaculous page. To do this click on the "All Installations" button at the top right corner of the screen.

2. On the next page, browse through your installation to find the application you would like to have backed up. Then, click on the "Backup" button next to it.

3. Now, check both "Backup Directory" and "Backup Database" to make sure Softaculous will backup your website completely. Then hit the "Backup Installation" button at the bottom of the page.

4. Allow the process few minutes to complete. During the backup creation, please do not close or refresh this page. Once everything is done, you will receive a message that the backup has been created successfully. Note that Softaculous displays conveniently a link, pointing to the Backups page. Click on it to proceed.

5. On the Backups page, you will see a list of all backups you have created previously. Next to each one of them, there are links for Download and Restoration. Click on the Download link and save the archive of your website locally. That's it! You now have a complete backup of your website that you can use in case something goes wrong with it!
