I've connected a google drive account to WHM and I'm sending daily backups to it.
I have a limit storage size of 15GB in google drive. and every backup size stored in google drive is almost 1GB because it backups all home directory files in addition to the database.
How can I send database only to google drive? I don't want to backup my home directory content(PHP projects). I only need to send sql dump to google drive.

Hey there! There aren't any native tools that would let you just move the database content. My best recommendation would be to set up a manual backup that just copies over the database dump outside of the WHM backup tools.
Use Jetbackup in this Case. It allows you to modify which things to Backup. Plus it has an additional feature for Incremental Backups which Automatically Deletes Older backups like 7-8 days old or whatever you set it to
