    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

    You can force a new backup generation by executing the following command as root:

    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup --force
    Are you accessing the server via SSH as root when searching for this directory?

    Thank you.
