How Do I Backup an Amazon Machine Image Instance to a File on My Computer?

Link: How Do I Backup an Amazon Machine Image Instance to a File on My Computer?

I am using Google Drive as the transport for Remote Destination in Additional Destinations in Backup Configuration.

I have configured cPanel Backup according to the following documentation:

Backup Configuration - Version 68 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

Google Drive - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

After receiving notifications from the Linux shell and email that my backup has completed successfully, I found that there is ONLY ONE backup file in the following backup path on Google Drive.

Google Drive > cPanel Amazon AWS > 2018-01-02 > system > system_files.tar

As I have only one backup file "system_files.tar" (filesize 158 MB only) in the entire manual backup, how do I *verify* if my backup has completed successfully?

Thank you.

Hello,

I believe you can check the below log files for backup logs to confirm if the backup completed successfully or not.

/usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup

/usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup_transporter

Hello,

Check to ensure your accounts are enabled for backups using "WHM >> Backup User Selection". Additionally make sure "Backup Accounts" is enabled in "WHM >> Backup Configuration".

Thank you.

Go to directory
Code:
cd /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup/
list all files
Code:
ls
check log file was running
show current modification with tail like this:

Code:
 tail -f /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup/1601740197.log
