    Hi,

    Are there any APIs for generating and grabbing cpanel backups?

    Cheers

    Hi Simon,

    There should be some threads around here that address the matter in detail. One recent one that I happen to know off the top of my head:
    http://forums.cpanel.net/f42/backup-api-questions-152033.html

    Essentially, it boils down to using:

    1) API1 Fileman::fullbackup
    ApiFileman < ApiDocs/Api1 < TWiki
    for the backup

    2) API2 Backups::listfullbackups
    ApiBackups < ApiDocs/Api2 < TWiki
    to list any backups

    3) use FTP/SCP to retrieve the files.

    At this time, there is no unified API solely for backup management. Hopefully, in the future, more functions will be made for the API2 Backups module.

    Feel free to make a Feature Requests for cPanel and WHM - cPanel Forums

    Regards,
    -DavidN
