    I would like to use the standard cPanel backup and then rsync the backup gz files to a remote server. The only place on the hard drive large enough to store the backup files is the /home partitian on the server. However, when I try to configure the WHM backup for the /home/backup folder it tells me:

    Quotas cannot be built! Your cpbackup destination is on a filesystem which has quotas enabled. Please move it to a filesystem which does not have quotas turned on or a separate partition/disk slice mounted at /backup.Backup has been disabled to prevent quota problems

    How am I supposed to do this?

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Hi, edite the cpbackup.conf file:

    pico /etc/cpbackup.conf

    and modify the line:

    BACKUPENABLE no

    to

    BACKUPENABLE yes

    BUT - does anybody know how to say why this message of CPANEL BACKUP (/home insue)?

    You probably want to add another drive, and have your backups stored there.
