    Hello,
    I have activated WHM Backup script, here is my configuration:
    Code:
    BACKUP2 yes
    BACKUPACCTS yes
    BACKUPCHECK yes
    BACKUPDAYS 0,1,2,3,4,5,6
    BACKUPDIR /backup
    BACKUPENABLE yes
    BACKUPFILES yes
    BACKUPFTPDIR 
    BACKUPFTPHOST 
    BACKUPFTPPASSIVE yes
    BACKUPFTPUSER 
    BACKUPINC yes
    BACKUPINT daily
    BACKUPLOGS yes
    BACKUPMOUNT no
    BACKUPRETDAILY 1
    BACKUPRETMONTHLY 1
    BACKUPRETWEEKLY 1
    BACKUPTYPE normal
    COMPRESSACCTS yes
    DIEIFNOTMOUNTED no
    GZIPRSYNCOPTS --rsyncable
    LINKDEST no
    LOCALZONESONLY no
    MYSQLBACKUP both
    USEBINARYPKGACCT no

    In this link, you can see what WHM explains:

    Backup Accounts: Select whether or not you wish to back up accounts. (By default, only system files are contained within backups.)

    So, is there a way to backup all user datas ? I mean not only system files, but also all user datas. If there is no solution, I have to backup manually, the whole /home directory.

    I think there is no configuration for whm backup script that makes it backup user datas. So I create a simple script that copy the whole /home directory by using rsync.

    If Backup Accounts is checked, then all data related to each account will be backed up. This includes mail, databases, Mailman mailing lists, and more. Unless I am misunderstanding your question, Backup Accounts will do exactly what you want.

    Each account will be backed up into an archive that contains all of the data that would be needed to create that account in again in exactly the state it was in at the time that the backup was made.
