Not sure what I can do to help here.

Inside the backup directory on your backup server, for instance look in the daily/ directory, you should see the account backups, a directory called files, and a directory called dirs. There is where you'd find the "...and Entire MySQL Directory"

In your account backup should be a mysql/ directory containing your MySQL backups for the account itself. Providing everything is working properly on your server, and your account has plenty of space that's where you'd find your databases.

If you have the space, and databases are not in that backup, then somethings wrong I would think. I can't assist you with that. You might like to put in a ticket to cPanel Support and have them come by and take a closer look at why not.

Are the accounts being zipped? If they are in tar.gz or gz files, you'll have to unzip the archive to see it. This happens if you select compression. Once you extract the file for the user, you'll see a mysql directory inside that extracted account folder. If you want to display what you are seeing inside the daily backup folder, we might be able to help further if that isn't what is happening.
