How To Create Softaculous BackUps Folder in cPanel


Yesterday, while following the guide on Softaculous website that explains how to restore a backup on a new server, I was stucked at "Step 5" for some minutes.


The "Step 5" simply requires that I copy the backup file to my new server at the following path /home/USERNAME/softaculous_backups/

I was looking for the folder without knowing I have to create it by myself....lol.

After brainstorming for some minutes, I decided to create it by myself and it worked!

So, if you don't know how to create the softaculous_backups folder, follow me through the steps below:

==> Sign in to your cPanel and scroll down to the 'Files" section

==> Click on "File Manager".
==> Select "Home Directory" and ensure you select "show hidden files" as seen in the screenshot below:

cPanel fule Manager


==> Click "Go"

You will be redirected to the "File Manager" page.

==> Click "Create New Folder" icon. A window will pop up.
==> Enter "softaculous_backups" as the New Folder Name
==> Leave next field empty and click "Create New Folder"


That's all.

You can proceed to upload your softaculous backUps to the folder.

I hope this helps.
