    Hello :)

    Creating a single backup for the entire MySQL directory can be useful in some cases. For example, if you have your MySQL data directory on a separate partition or drive that becomes corrupted, the ability to restore the entire MySQL directory from a backup would save time.

    Thank you.

    By saving the entire MySQL directory, you also get the complete mysql database tables along with the cphulkd, eximstats, horde, leechprotect, roundcube, modsec, and any other databases created for cPanel that aren't cPanel account specific databases.

    Additionally, if you have any self configured databases that do not run under cPanel accounts, those will also be saved.

    Finally, you'll get the log files in /var/lib/mysql such as the error log (hostname.err).
