How To Backup Your Softaculous Applications To Dropbox

Dropbox is a file hosting service operated by American company Dropbox, Inc., headquartered in San Francisco, California, that offers cloud storage, file synchronization, personal cloud, and client software.

Dropbox can create a special folder on the user's computer, the contents of which are then synchronized to Dropbox's servers and to other computers and devices that the user has installed Dropbox on, keeping the same files up-to-date on all devices. Dropbox uses a freemium business model, where users are offered a free account with a set storage size.

Along with our premium partner Softaculous, you can now back up every single application you installed with Softaculous to your Dropbox and access them from every device you connected your Dropbox too.

To do that, please follow this step-by-step guidance:

  1. Visit Softaculous Enduser -> Edit Settings -> Click on Add Backup Location.

  7. Optional: If you want to set a separate directory for your backups inside Softaculous App directory (recommended for easier navigation and access), you may specify the same here, e.g. /wordpress. If left empty, backups will be stored in the Softaculous App directory itself.
  8. Click on Add Backup Location button to add the location in Softaculous.

That's it. You have successfully added Dropbox as an additional backup for your apps.
