    Hi, servers with clients during creating backup have to high load and do this too long... I must find another way to create backup.

    In "Configure Backup" i have founded this option:

    "Incremental backup (only backup what has changed. (**No Compression**, not compatible w/ftp backups)"

    This option work correct? Can i copy this catalog to another server and restore this backup using cPanel??

    Thanks for help :)

    hi

    i usually let cpbackup configured to weekly (not incremental) basis

    so everytime i need to run the backup i use ssh to rm -rf /home/cpbackuptmp

    and then /scripts/cpbackup

    if your server is overloading during the backup it sounds like another issue such as low memory (try to upgrade it) or some process is consuming a lot, maybe exim or your AV if you are receiving many smpt spam or attacks,

    rsync is another secure solution to backups but i think cpanel backup is simple and to a regular user it fits well (if you can program in perl or python you can use rsync to create a new script)

    good luck

    But i need do backup every day.

    Resaon of high load are clients with 2 GB hundreds files...

    rsync is good but it is not compatible with cpanel restore backup (isnt it?).

    I must only know this option work good (is compatible) with cpanel restore backups:
    "Incremental backup (only backup what has changed. (**No Compression**, not compatible w/ftp backups)"

    So if this create in backups folder "user " can i move this to another server and restore like "user.tar.gz"?
