    so I need to back up my server to replace some bad hardware and refresh the OS.. how do you back up WHM/cPanel's settings? dns, accounts, config's, apache/php/mysql, etc..

    Also is there an easy way to capture all the account info / data and store it on another drive on a remote sever (also cPanel) VS running cpbackup script one account (and all that /home dir space usage for the .tar.gz as well as server loads) at a time?

    basically we just need to store the current setup offline til they repair our box.. we have no $ to buy any 3rd party service etc.. we do have access to a secondary drikve on another server, how would we FTP(?)/connect to it to store these backups?

    any suggestions? help?

    thanks

    Hi Steve,

    The best way to backup the whole server in a single go [including the complete server configuration] would be using RSYNC :D
    Let me know if you need any further info... :) Or visit my site's blogs for more info..
