    Hi,

    I saw option daily backup on cpanel. From what i see it's not truly backup.

    On 1 week we have monday to saturday. Normally weekly backup goes to sunday. Let say, after a week our client got hack their website on friday. Then they request for restore backup for last monday. Is it possible or not?

    Normally when client request, we restore the last day. Mean if happen on friday then we will restore last thurday. If not we will take weekly backup. There are no backup on last wednesday,tuesday or monday.

    We are using other backup for database. The backup is using bacula. We can choose what date we want to restore. From cpanel, i don't see this option. If does, please show me the way.

    Thanks.

    You can keep multiple backups using cPanel backups. If you wish to keep old archive backup, you can purchase offsite backup space and move old backups from your server before they are being rotated. They provide daily, weekly and monthly backup configuration and I believe that is more than sufficient. It is up to user how many backup they want to keep.

    Hello,

    You can configure multiple daily backups instead of weekly backups if you want backups available from specific days of the week. Information on backup configuration options is available at:

    Backup Configuration - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    In particular, pay close attention to the "Scheduling and Retention" section.

    Thank you.
