Export a backup of my site

Linode Staff

Hi, I'd like to export a backup of my site from the Linode Manager or WHM. Is this possible?

There isn't currently functionality to export a Backup directly from the Linode Manager. Linode Backups are only able to be restored directly to another Linode.

The best way to create a local backup would be to copy your Linode's disk over SSH using the dd utility. There's actually a great guide on this in the docs sections:
