    Is there a "best practice" or recommend amount of backups I should have setup on my cPanel?

    Currently, my backup is set to daily with retaining just one copy, which gets replaced everyday.

    Additionally, I have a backup that runs once per week and retains two.

    Is this sufficient, or should I add more? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you

    Hello :)

    That's sufficient for most servers, but the amount of backups to retain is really dependent on the needs of your customers. It's difficult to recommend any specific retention values because it depends on what you want to offer to your customers, and what your customers might expect.

    Thank you.
