How to package/ backup a CPanel account from the command line

Written by Ian Carnaghan · 12 sec read >

This can be done by running the /scripts/pkgacct script from the cli. Running this command will create a cpmove archive which can be used to restore on another cpanel server.


/scripts/pkgacct [arguments] username destination


/scripts/pkgacct accountusername /tmp

The above command will create a full backup and store the archive in the tmp directory.
