    hello,

    i was looking for a solution on forum but was unable to find it, I have 2 servers with same configuration, so I want to create a space for backup on each and viceversa, my questions are

    1.- where should be located the remote backup (/home, /home2, /home3, /root, /usr, /usr/home, /web)
    2.- sftp is the best option for security? is slower than ftp? ftp is fine?
    3.- and the real question, when needed, how im gonna restore files and DB (or the whole thing) so i just have to change dns and done for each account

    thanks ins advance

    Hello :)

    You could use the backup option in WHM:

    "WHM Home » Backup » Backup Configuration"

    Setup an additional destination to transfer the backups to the remote server. The partition you choose depends on which one has available space (and preferably separate from your accounts). SFTP is acceptable and generally more secure than FTP. Backups are restored via:

    "WHM Home » Backup » Backup Restoration"

    Thank you.

    "WHM Home » Backup » Backup Restoration" allows you to restore backups that are stored on the server.

    Thank you.

    i dont see backup restoration from a file in the server [Removed] , what i see is the default local restoration folder, but this will be another folder that comes from the other server, im missing something i guess

    Right, that's normal. You must upload the archives to the local server before you can restore them. This is documented here:

    Remote Restoration

    Thank you.
