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?
