    Hello,

    how to create backup space on remote server for each newly created cPanel. So client can download backups even primary hosting server is down?

    Preferrably if each backup space has same login and password like cpanel

    What are simplest/easiest solutins for this without purchasing some software?

    Thank you

    Hello :)

    There are no native features that allow users to access backups from a remote destination in the event there's no access to their cPanel account. I suggest opening a feature request for this via:

    Submit A Feature Request

    As far as workarounds, you could transfer all of your accounts to a remote cPanel server using the "Transfer Tool" option in Web Host Manager (skipping the home directories), and then configure remote destination backups on the source cPanel server to the default backup directory on the destination cPanel server. Enable backups on the destination cPanel server via "WHM >> Backup Configuration", ensuring you exclude all users from local backups on this server. This would allow your users to access cPanel on the destination server and use the "Backup" option to download a system backup. Note you would need to setup a special feature list for the accounts on the destination server that only allows users access to the "Backup" feature, and provide the separate URL to users (e.g. server2.tld/cpanel).

    Thank you.
