    I need a backup from last 7 days of a database.

    My legacy backup configurations are :

    All backups, are going to a NFS filesystem with enough free space ; but, when I look inside of /backup/cpbackup/daily I just can see only a backup from last 28 August, and NOT previous days

    On /backup/cpbackup/weekly, the same. Only one backup.

    I suppose that a daily retention will not delete old backups.

    I 'm wrong? Where is my mistake?



    I'm looking into

    I can't configure the days to retain backup.

    Hello :)

    Please browse to:

    "WHM Home » Backup » Backup Configuration"

    You will see an option that states:

    "Retain __ Daily backups"

    This is the number of backups that are retained at any given time. You may want to switch to using the new backup system to take advantage of this feature. The legacy backup system will only retain a single backup for daily, weekly, and monthly.

    Thank you.
