Hi guys

I configured a WHM Backup to run daily with 2 copies to be kept for my Magento 2 Vps

However I can't seem to find the /backup directory in my server.

Secondly how do I force a backup to be performed because I would like to do a backup before installing or uninstalling some extensions in Magento 2.

Hello @sgfreshidea,

Our Backup Configuration document is a useful reference if you have not already seen it:

Backup Configuration - Version 78 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

Secondly how do I force a backup to be performed because I would like to do a backup before installing or uninstalling some extensions in Magento 2.
You can force a new backup generation by executing the following command as root:

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup --force
However I can't seem to find the /backup directory in my server.
Are you accessing the server via SSH as root when searching for this directory?

Thank you.
