    I've set up my cpanel to remote backup to an ftp.
    Everything is fine and I have set up daily,weekly,monthly backup retention.
    A backup once a day.

    Now the backup for monthly is ok always just one backup for the last month.
    But for the weekly's and daily's it is just one backup from the day or week before.

    I would like to have 7 daily's, I can't seem to figure out how that is possible i'm guessing I'm just overlooking it but can somebody guide me :)

    So I would like 1 monthly, 4 weekly's and 7 daily's

    Hello JnB,

    Using WHM > Backup > Configure Backup area, there is not an option to retain 7 days of daily backups.

    If you need to have this available, you would have to create a cron on the remote FTP machine to backup the daily folder each day to another folder and date it to keep the name of that folder unique.

    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
