    I wanted to be able to have the server make a backup of each account onto a remote ftp location as its backup location. I like the way the cPanel>Backup>Backup entire account feature backs it up to a remote location. Maybe an automated version of that? Because I just drop those into /home and then tell in my root whm to restore them, i just type the username and it finds the file. It reinstalls the account perfectly.

    I have my server setup to do this nightly. It backs it up to my home PC. I setup a FTP Server on my computer, went to Configure Backups in my WHM and configured it there. Works perfectly. Backsup ALL files on the accounts I list. Maybe you could do that. It has a setting for a remote FTP backup.

    Anyone use a script to ftp the local backups done by cPanel to a remote server, for redundancy?
