Backup without using FTP


If you want the backup at your local machine without using FTP.


1 – Make the compressed file

Take the web ssh of the application/database layer.

Go to the path where your data is stored.

Eg: If you are using an apache application layer then it should be /var/www/webroot/ROOT.

Make the .tar, .zip, etc. file of the ROOT folder.

2 – Move the compressed file

Move the compressed file to the document root.

Then give full permission to a compressed file:
chmod 777 root.tar.gz

3 – Browse the compressed file path

<IP>/root.tar.gz OR <domain>/root.tar.gz.

Note: It should have public IP.

From this, you can download the compressed file at your local machine.

Another way to download the compressed file by command line is

wget http://<IP>/root.tar.gz              OR

wget http:// <domain>/root.tar.gz
