The cPanel servers internal storage is a disabled backup location for Installatron as the storage of backup files in your cPanel account is against our Acceptable Use Policy.

Instead, we recommend that you configure Installatron to backup to an external location which is a much safer alternative in case anything happens to your web hosting account.

The following external options are available to you:

  • FTP
  • FTP with TLS/SSL
  • SFTP
  • WebDAV
  • Dropbox
  • Google Drive
  • Rackspace Cloud
  • Amazon S3

Here is an example of configuring a Google Drive backup location:

1.) Navigate to cPanel > Installatron Applications Installer, then click on the spanner icon corressponding to the website you would like to set up a backup location for.

Application Edit

2.) Scroll down until you get to Default Backup Location. Click Add a new backup location. Select your backup option, in this example we'll choose Google Drive.

Backup Location Selection

3.) Sign into your Google account. You will be asked to allow Installatron access to your Google Drive account, you will need to allow this for the backup functionality to operate.

4.) All done! From now on, any automated or manual Installatron backups for this website will now be sent externally to Google Drive.
