Backing up is not dependent on your Web server like Apache and it depends on what OS you are using.

You can use google's power with this search query you can find entire website backups.
Code:
"index of /"+"backup-"+"tar.gz"

Nice one Alex lol. Yes you can use that if you want to find any vulnerable servers backups. If you own the server or renting it login to your cpanel and from there you can go to your backup area to see all backups. if you have remote access then run terminal in root and locate backups
