    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.

    as stated above "rsync your data to a remote server. FTP is not the best method to transfer data"

    use rsync or scp over SSH most set ups use eth1 as the private device but only you would know
