    Hello,
    I have configured daily backup through WHM and set it to store on a /backup folder (The default setting).

    My question is, how do I check if the backups are being generated and how do I view them and delete the old backups? I have SSH Access with root account.

    Is there any way to have last 7 days backup only? I mean, after 7 days, the old backups will automatically pruned to free up disk space?

    Sorry if I am asking too much, but I am pretty new in WHM/cPanel.

    Thanks

    You can view the backup from the /backup drive and also you will have to set the cron to automatic remove the backup.
