    I have started backing up certain accounts on my server. So I have configured the "Configure Backup" section in WHM. I have used the "Select Specific Users" part and selected users which I want backing up to an external ftp server.
    The first backup was done last night, so I checked the external server, all accounts which I selected had been backed up, but there were also a few which I did not select. So I went back to the Backup section in WHM, had a look at the Select Specific Users section. There were accounts selected which I did not select. Why is this :confused:

    Current Backup setup:

    Backup Status: Enabled
    Backup Interval: Daily
    Backup Retention: Weekly & Monthly
    Days to run backup: Everyday
    Remount/Unmount backup drive: Disabled
    Bail out if the backup drive cannot be mounted: Disabled
    Incremental backup: Disabled
    Backup Accounts: Enabled
    Backup Config Files: Disabled
    Sql Databases: Per accounts only
    Backup Raw Access Logs: Disabled
    Backup Type: Remote FTP server
    Ftp Backup Host: ftp.mysecondserver.com
    Ftp Backup User: mysecondserver.com
    Ftp Backup Pass: mypass
    Ftp Backup Directory/Path: None selected
    Use Passive mode for Ftp transfers: Enabled
    Backup Destination: /backup
    Select Specific Users > Selected!


    Thanks in advance

    if those a/c's were created after you configured backups, the new a/c's thereafter would be included until you specifically remove them from list.

    see ya,

    That’s stupid, it says "select specific accounts", it should not add other accounts even if they have been created after I selected the “specific” accounts!!
