    I purchased 100 Gig cdp backup

    I have a site that uses about 50 gig with mysql ( database is very important for me)

    My backup provider is asking me what paths I want them to include in backup

    What should I choose?

    Hello :)

    Are you planning to backup the entire server, or are you only wanting to backup select aspects of the account? I suggest enabling backups via the "Backup Configuration" option in Web Host Manager in addition to your live backups, as this will make it easier to restore the account if the event of data failure.

    Thank you.

    thanks for reply. I need your suggestions. I have already configured backup in whm for every day. Now I have a CDP backup 100 Gig on remote server but I need to tell the provider exactly what to backup and what ever you suggest I will do . Thanks:)

    Outside of the backups for the accounts, you could follow the instructions at the below document to generate backups of your configuration files:

    The cpconftool Script - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    However, it really depends on the data you prefer to backup. Are you including MySQL databases with your account backups?

    Thank you.
