    Is there a way to completely exclude a domain from being backed up on the daily/weekly/monthly backups but still back everything else up?

    I need to exclude a directory from being backedup since it contains many huge files which take a long time to backup and also the customer has these files on his computer. Anyone know if this is possible?

    Nope. I never submitted a support ticket. I was hoping someone may post something here.

    Exclude accounts is easy....

    When you take a look at the /scrpts/cpbackup , you find a line with:
    open(CPBACK,"/etc/cpbackup-userskip.conf");
    This made me think........
    This file doesn't exist usually, but we can work on that!
    Just mention one username on each line.

    It's real simple and very safe for future updates!
    I don't like to mess around in scripts, because you don't know what will be overwritten with newer cPanel versions.

    You all guys will enjoy this option very much! Thank you cpanel-programmers!
