    I just accomplished a migration from one cPanel box to another.. But the backup folder did not move from the old to the new. Both boxes are set up with separate drives for this purpose..

    I'd like to move the backup folder over and cotinue with incremental backups as I had them set up on the old box.. did not see specific mention of this process in archives, forgive me if my search skills are not up to par.. Migration can take a lot out of a guy!

    TIA!

    Hello,

    You can migrate your backup folder through rsynce from your old server to new server and setup the same backup config on your new server

    Wow, thanks, doing it as we speak... I'd already attempted to rsync it over, the files came but cPanel was not seeing them, pretty sure I did it wrong..

    Adding an addition to how I had to do it in order to help anyone else who needs this info.. I learned something, I run ssh on a different port, so I had to figure out how to get that to work..

    Currently running, previous attempt deleted, hoping the new effort with your help will do the trick.

    Thanks!

    Hello :)

    If you are migrating to cPanel version 11.38, you can ensure your old incremental backups are still enabled by ensuring "Incremental Backup" is enabled via:

    "WHM Home » Backup » Legacy Backup Configuration"

    Thank you.
