4) On the left, in the "Server Management" section, select the "Backups" subsection by clicking on it with the left mouse button.

Before the final stage, make sure your internet connection is functioning well to avoid file loss

6) Please pay attention to the warning link and read it before installing the backup. If desired, you can delete previous server files if they are not needed. After reading the message, click the "Restore Backup" button and wait for the download to complete.

7) Done. You have uploaded a backup copy of the server instead of the current files.

Downloading in FileZilla

1) You need to connect your server data with FileZilla via an SFTP connection. You can view your data in the control panel of your server.
