Backup an installation from Command Line

Softaculous allows you to backup an installation from command line. Here is the guide:

  • Use the following command to backup an installation :
 Root> php /path/to/softaculous/cli.php --backup --user=USER --insid=INSID
  • Thats it. The installation is now backed up.


  • In the above command the first parameter should be --backup as this parameter will initiate the backup function.
  • --user=USER - Here USER is the user under which the installation is made.
  • --insid=INSID - This is the insid is the installation id of the installation you want to backup.
