About website backups

Enhance allows customers to generate and restore website backups from within their account.

To allow website backups:


  • A Backup role must be installed on a server within your Enhance estate.
  • The hosting package the website is on must allow backups.

Allow backups on packages

To allow backups on a hosting package:


  1. Open 'Settings' in the the left side bar
  2. Select 'Packages'
  3. Click 'Add package' and scroll to the 'Backups' section. Here you will be able to configure the different features available to customers.


ℹ️ If the 'Backups' section is locked, this is because you do not have a Backup role installed on your Enhance estate. Install a Backup role in order to offer this features.

Backup package options:

  • If enabled Allow backups will give customers the option to view 'system' generated backups from within their account via the 'Backups' tab on websites dashboard. System generated backups will run according to your configured backup role settings.


  • If enabled Allow manual backups will allow customers to generate on demand backups via the 'Backup now' button in the 'Backups' tab on a websites dashboard.
