    Hello !

    I have two servers (server1 and server2) to store backups of the accounts I host. Thus I'm thinking about making
    • a backup on monday to server1
    • AND a backup on thursday to server2.
    I have much more disk space on Server1 than on server2 so I would like to store 5 weekly backups on server1 and 3 weekly backups on server2...

    Is that possible ? I can't find in the backup configuration how to configure such a thing...

    Thank you very much for your help !

    Best regards,

    Trucmuche

    Hello,

    It might be easier to configure backups to Server1, and then setup a cron job on Server1 to sync specific backups to Server2 on a regular basis. Otherwise, you can add additional destinations through the "Backup Configuration" option in cPanel, but you can't dictate specific days to send backups to each destination.

    Thank you.

    I don't have CRON access in Server1...

    Yes, I could ask WHM to put the same backups on two different servers, but it would be very nice to be able to change the configuration associated to each destination... Having two backups is better than one, of course, but dictate specific settings to each destinations would be a nice feature (that Direct Admin has for long)... Is this planned for future version ?
