    Hello good evening ladies and gentlemen.
    I read the documentation and found no answer pair aminha doubt.
    Today we held weekly backup of customer accounts and would like to have the opportunity to also perform daily backups, for customers who want added protection, my question is:
    I can just set up some accounts for daily backup? Example, let's imagine that I make weekly backup of 100 daily but I would like to backup only 10, it is possible to accomplish this?

    Thank you so much!

    Hello,

    Currently There are the two backup system in the WHM, You can enable one for the daily backup and second for the weekly backup

    OR

    You can setup the simple bash scripts for the daily backup user. So that your scripts will be generate the backup using /scripts/pkgacct and will store it under the daily backup folder.

    Hello :)

    There are no native features that will allow you to backup some accounts for daily backups, and other accounts for weekly backups. Feel free to submit a feature request via:

    Otherwise, you could review a couple of the workarounds mentioned in the previous post.

    Thank you.

    Hello guys, I'm running a lot in these last few days and have not had time to return to this topic, but let's continue it now.
    Good for what I could see there is no option available, then I wonder if I can type a command and perform a full backup of a single account.

    Thank you!

    Yes, you can manually backup an account via:

    Code:
    /scripts/pkgacct $username
    Thank you.
