    Hello
    i alwayse used to put my backups under /var/mybackups

    but nowadays the var partition gets 100% and ofcourse many troubles happend like mysql crashes ... etc

    if i make the back direction to be to /home/mybackup i face alot of quata problems and all websites quotas are resetted to 0

    i decided to creat /mybackup as a sim link to /home/mybackup but the backup configfuration refused it and said backup disabled as i'm using a sim link

    so any idea to force it accept a imlink or to incease the space for /var however all my free spaces are used and my db returns

    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda1 1510032 795460 637864 56% /
    /dev/sda7 85080348 68829656 11928808 86% /home
    none 516608 0 516608 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/sda3 10080520 4490368 5078084 47% /usr
    /dev/sda2 16128668 7989360 7319996 53% /var
    /usr/tmpDSK 247919 29441 205678 13% /tmp
    /tmp 247919 29441 205678 13% /var/tmp


    home is 85% because i copy backups manually to it , var is 53% as i just already moved backups from it

    Go on, have a guess
    Nothing much you can do. You should never put backups on the /home partition for obvious reasons and is why cPanel tries to stop you doing it. You'll either need to get some off-server storage space or have a second drive added to the server for backups.

    i got alot of off-server storage but the space gets 100% full before it even begins to start uploading to teh remote server
    and i cannot afford additional drives providing that i got hundreds of GBS in off servers
