For cPanel & WHM version 64

(Main >> Backup >> Configure Backup)

Overview

You can use WHM's Configure Backup feature to back up your system's configuration files and directories. However, you must restore configuration files and directories manually.

Backup files and directories

When you select Backup Configuration Files on the WHM Configure Backup screen, cPanel & WHM backs up the following files and directories:

Files:

/etc/exim.conf.local
