    To make a backup to your admincp directory you will need to chmod that directory to 777.Note: The only consistently reliable method of backing up and restoring a database is with shell access via telnet or ssh. Please see the instructions here:



    This is because backing up with a PHP script like that in the Admin CP or phpMyAdmin can result in PHP timeouts errors and an incomplete backup file.
