Hi,

What i'd like to do is this:

Daily: Backup all accounts etc to my second hard drive, mounted /backup.
I've got this bit working fine, but what i'd also like to do:

Every 2/3 days: Backup all accounts in a .tar.gz form to a remote server via FTP

I know cPanel can do both of these seperatly, but how do I get them to do this at the same time?

Do I have to make a little script and run crontab every 2/3 days to do this?

Yes, you need a script that will run every time you need to backup, and rsync your data to a remote server. FTP is not the best method to transfer data.

Hello,

Is it that easy to let WHM make a copy of weekly backups to the ftp space on the local network in the same datacenter ? that's mean it should use different lan card than the public one such as eth0 or eth1, If so please advice with a little tips on how to do it without effecting the regular WHM backups in any way.

Regards.
