    If i want to change local backup location from /backup to /home/backup. Wil this command that i found work correctly?

    mount --bind /home/backup /backup

    Problem is my vps has only 50gb on / and if i create a new vps which i did and make it 350GB total instead of 150GB then / is still only 50GB. So i want to store the backups on /home/ where i have plenty of room.. or make / larger but i feel the first one is easier then the later one..

    Hi,
    You can change the backup directory through WHM

    "WHM Home » Backup » Backup Configuration"
