Managing Website Backups in CPanel w/o Automated Backups Enabled

Some Cpanel web host providers provide automation for regular scheduled backups with their hosting plans for free, and some only allow you this feature as an expensive add-on.

If you are in the latter position and don’t want to pay an extra $50 a month for that, there’s a nice free backup script you can use to fudge it an protect your website with regular backups using cronjobs.

The script can be downloaded from free of charge.
