    Hello,

    Is there a settings file which contains the list of users that have the new backup enabled? Looking for an equivalent of /etc/cpbackup-userskip.conf, which is for the legacy backup.

    Thank you.

    I've found a setting in the file /var/cpanel/users/MY_USER:

    BACKUP=1

    If this is right, please confirm. If there is another list somewhere that can be used, please let me know.

    Hello,

    Yes, I know the WHM interface, but I was wondering about some settings file. Turns out that if I modify the settings file /var/cpanel/users/MY_USER and toggle the BACKUP= entry from 0 to 1 and then rebuild the system caches with /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/updateuserdomains , the WHM interface gets updated as well.
