How to set up a scheduled backup on an LXC VPS

First you need to access the management panel of your VPS LXC then click on the Programmed Backup tab in the Additional Tools sub-menu:

It then appears all the scheduled backups that you already have for your VPS, if you do not have the list is empty:

To create a scheduled backup just click on New Schedule and answer these few questions : 

Backup time: Time at which the backup should be made.
Backup day: Days when the backup must be done
Type of compression: None, LZO or GZIP. It is recommended to choose LZO for fast backup.
Backup mode: Snapshot, Suspend or Stop. It is recommended to choose Snapshot
Email notification: Allows you to receive an email when the backup is complete.

Then click on Add to save the scheduled backup of your VPS.

Compression saves space on our backup storage units, however, it is optional. The Suspend and Stop backup mode causes the VPS to be unavailable during backup.

Depending on the offer, the maximum number of backups may vary.
