Hi,
Is it possible to use the built in backup tool to backup things like people's account configuration? By that I mean usernames and passwords.
I already have a system that backs up all of the content. What I am missing is a system that I can use to backup the server configuration, so that if I have to rebuild from scratch, I can restore all of the accounts and then restore the data from my other system.

If anyone is interested, I use BackupPC to backup the content. If the above isn't possible with the built in backups then what folders/databases etc could I use to rebuild the server?


Make sense?

Are you using WHM's built in backup system? If configured correctly it should backup all of the most important files every night of the week if you choose that option with all you need (for the most part) to put the server back together if needed.

One or more of these should help.
