Database backup ONLY -- Per Account Only

I did not find any answer in the forum yet for what I wish to do.
We have an external system that backups our entire machine, which allows us to restore the full machine, or access individual files. In that sense, we do not need to backup the accounts, nor the system. But for backups to work, it seems that at least one option needs to be checked.
BUT, what I am interested in is having PER ACCOUNT MySQL backups, in case we need to reimport individual data.


But this seems not to be working. The individual DB backups are nowhere to be found.

My question is: how can I backup ONLY account SQL DB/have DB dumps, without anything else?
Seems like your backup tools does not work here.

Hey there! This isn't a way to do that with the cPanel backup tools - you'd get the database in addition to the entire account content.

For a more advanced backup solution you may want to check out as they do offer the option to just backup account databases with no additional data.
