    Hello Cpanel Gurus,
    I would be able to use curlftpfs on Cpanel full backups (Weekly), when it was compressing it would compress directly to the ftp...
    This way it would avoid writing the .tar file to the server disk and then copying to the ftp...
    curlftpfs mounts the ftp...
    How can there any pre and post backup file where I can add some linux commands?

    There's no support for this functionality, however you may find the following feature request helpful:

    Support for remote incremental backups

    Feel free to subscribe to the request to monitor it's progress.

    Backup hooks are configured using the standardized hook system:

    There's a thread on this at:

    rsync after backup ends

    Thank you.
