    How can I schedule hourly backup without being overwritten with updates? Possible somehow?

    Hello,

    Could you provide some more information about this request? For instance, are you referring to WHM backups for all accounts?

    Thank you.

    Yes. I have only 3 accounts and I need to backup them 3 hours interval to ftp. On builtin backup system, I see only daily backups.

    There's no support for hourly backups in the product. You could develop a script that runs the "pkgacct" command manually on each account and then copies it to a remote destination. You'd then run that script every hour via a cron job. Keep in mind that backups may take longer than an hour to generate and transfer to a remote destination, especially if accounts are large in size. Additionally, it may result in a higher load on the system.

    Thank you.
