ISPConfig has two backup modes which can be configured under system > server config.

The .zip mode backs up all files owned by the user of the website. File endings does not matter.

The tar.gz mode backs up all files of the web.

The zip mode is safer as it does not run with root priveliges during backup, so it can not accidently contain sensitive files owned by the root user.
