Hola a todos!

Esta es mi primera pregunta a la comunidad de expertos. Estoy muy feliz en formar parte de este foro.

Tengo contratadas 2 VPS, con distintos proveedores. Desde cada una me llegó un correo con asunto "Cron <[email protected]> /usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup" y el contenido del correo decía "[2017-12-11 10:02:02 -0500] warn [backup] Backup Not Enabled (This can be adjusted in WHM => Backup => Backup Configuration)"

¿Alguien me podría explicar qué significa ese mensaje? ¿Es algo crítico?

Gracias de antemano por cualquier ayuda.

Saludos!

Daniel

Hello,

That message is just letting you know that backups are not enabled. The warning email is no longer sent as of cPanel verison 68.0.16:

Fixed case CPANEL-16887: Backups: avoid sending cron emails when disabled.

Thank you.

Translation:

Hola,

Ese mensaje solo le informa que las copias de seguridad no están habilitadas. El correo electrónico de advertencia ya no se envía a partir de cPanel verison 68.0.16:

Gracias.

Hi Michael!

Thank you very much for your prompt response. Now I understand the case.

In your opinion, is it convenient to enable and use backups?

The space that these backups might take up will be taken from the same plan offered by the hosting provider, right?

Do backup processes tend to be resource and runtime demanding?

Thank you for your time and help, I appreciate it very much.

Best regards!

Hi Daniel,

Do backup processes tend to be resource and runtime demanding?
In some cases, but it really just depends on the size of the accounts, the number of files within the accounts, and your server resources. Note the following option is available under the "Stats and Logs" tab in "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Tweak Settings":

"Extra CPUs for server load"

Per it's description:

The load average above the number of CPUs at which cpuwatch, cpanellogd, backups, and CPU stats consider the system to be in a critical load state. For example, a server with 4 physical CPUs and a value of 2 in this field will be considered “critical” in these cases once the load reaches 6.


Additionally, you can adjust the following option in "WHM >> Tweak Settings" under the "System" tab:

I/O priority level at which nightly backups are run


Per it's description:

You must compile ionice with your kernel to use this option. ionice manages I/O scheduling for processes on your system. Specifying a lower value for this option gives the process a higher priority. This option can accept integer values between 0 and 7.


Thank you.

The space that these backups might take up will be taken from the same plan offered by the hosting provider, right?
Yes, that's correct, unless you setup a remote destination (e.g. Google Drive) and store the backups there.

In your opinion, is it convenient to enable and use backups?
It's fairly straightforward. We document how to configure backups should you want more information:

Backup Configuration - Version 68 Documentation - cPanel Documentation
Backup Configuration FAQ - Version 68 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

Thanks!
