Hi guys, I configured the database backup in whm and selected the "Per Account Only" option. After the backup is complete, where are the .sql files stored?

If it's a compressed backup the .sql files are in <cPanelUsername>mysql/

To expand on @quietFinn's answer, normally the backup files are stored in the following location on the server:

/backup/2022-01-24/accounts

In that directory, you'll find username.tar.gz files, which is the backup of the account. The database content will be zipped in the account, and when unzipped will be located in the username/mysql directory.

Do you have any accounts included in the backups? inside WHM >> Backup Configuration, under the "Files" section, there is a "Backup Users" button. If you click that, do you show that users are selected? If not, you may only have system data being backed up.

I think that was the problem, I will select the user and test again. Thanks a lot for the help.
