Taking Cpanel backups
« on: June 03, 2005, 06:02:18 PM »
Cpanel Backups
================
1. Login to WHM using one of the below URLs (replacing servername.com with your
server's name or your primary IP)
 
https://servername.com:2087
http://servername.com:2086
http://servername.com/whm
 
2. Scroll down the menu, to see the section (6th section) called "Backup".
 
3. Click the link "Configure Backup"
 
4. Configure the settings as below
 
Code: [Select]
Backup Status          : Enabled
 Backup Interval        : Choose it at your discretion
 Backup Retention       : Choose the backup retention (retaining) policy. I would recommend monthly only if you have enough disk space
 Days to run backup     : Select all for a daily backup, and the day for weekly
 Remount/Unmount backup drive : Disabled
 Bail out               : Disabled
 Incremental backup     : Disabled
 Backup Accounts        : Enabled (it will backup the user's files also)
 Backup Config files    :  Disabled (This along with other SQL and accounts backup would rollback the whole system)
 Sql Databases          : Per Accounts and Entire Mysql Dir
 Backup Raw Access Logs : Disabled (Enable it only if you got enough space)
 Backup Type            : Remote Ftp Server (Accounts Only)
 Ftp Backup Host        : xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (Hostname we have mailed you)
 Ftp Backup User        : Username we have provided you
 Ftp Backup Pass        : Password
 Ftp Backup Directory/Path : / (This will make backup to /home/username)
 Use Passive mode for Ftp transfers : Enabled
 Backup Destination     : /backup
 Select Specific Users  : Field where you choose the specific accounts to backup. By default it is all.

5. And finally press the button Save and you are done :-)
