    I have a customer with a WHM account that wishes to backup his data daily.

    I'm trying to work out the best way to incremental (to save bandwidth) backup user accounts (files and databases) onto a remote server.

    What is the best way to achieve this?

    (Please don't be afraid to be too technical)

    use Rsync

    hi,
    if your customer wants to backup dialy he can either use cpanel to generate backup daily manually or thorugh cron(i think its possible) and download it to their local machine if they want.

    if you wish to use offsite backup, you can either genarate them locally and then ftp it to a remote server.

    Or you can use Rsync backup, which would copy all that have changed to a backup a/c. and would save you a lot of bandwidth cause only changed files would be transferred.
    (if you want u can check bqbackup.com)

    see ya,
    mohit
