    Hi

    Is it possible in whm, to backup account details but not the users data, so ie if the server was to fail, you could restore the users details, ie username password details, account details, but not all the data, as i would like to do this, with out having to backup all the server data,

    Just a quick question about doing a full server backup, what the compression like on this zipped file, what would 30gb become as a zip file?

    Go on, have a guess
    There's no option to exclude user data, so if you wanted to do that you'd have to hack around with /scripts/cpbackup to do that for you.

    It's also difficult to say what sort of compression you will get as it does entirely depend on the files being compressed. Lots of graphics, music or other such files usually don't compress well at all, whereas text files will usually compress greatly. The only way is to try it and find out.
