How To Use The External Backup Addon

This article is for Unmanaged Dedicated Server Accounts. Determine where your account is with this guide.

If you have ordered the "External Backup" addon for your unmanaged dedicated server, these backups are accessible by mounting the /remote/backups directory. This can be done by running the following command in SSH

cd /remote/backups/

You can then go into one of the daily X folders, where X is the number of days since the backup was taken. You will have a backup of all of your files and you can copy them as needed to your account.
