    Hi all,

    Currently one of our CPanel servers is reaching it's backup limits. Backup is done over FTP and is about 35 GB each night, taking up multiple hours to finish.

    Also I don't like CPanels backup scheme, I would like to have more than 1 daily backup etc.

    Is anyone aware of a solution like rsnapshot, where only updated files are transferred (making the backup a hell of a lot faster) and with a hardlink option so you can have multiple full backups without waste of diskspace?

    If not, isn't it time CPanel implemented something like this?

    Nevermind. Turned on daily incremental backups and I'm rsnapshotting that to a remote server now, seems to work fine.
