If you want to run this now, Login into main node and then run
# /usr/bin/php /usr/local/solusvm/includes/autoftpbackup.php
This will take backup of your vps and stored to the FTP server.
Restoring backups can be done via CLI on the node in question. To start a restore, do the following in SSH:
When asked, enter the vserver id of the vps you want to restore as shown in SolusVM.
Please note: If the VPS has been removed from SolusVM then you will need to create a New VPS for the client and run the following command:
# /usr/sbin/vzdump --restore /path/to/backup/file NEW-CONTAINER-ID
That's all :)
