    Hi there,

    Is there any way, using this method:

    1. To schedule the backups; and
    2. To backup to a 3rd party location - ie. AWS or Google Drive ?

    Kind regards,
    Anthony

    Hi,

    cPanel does provide this features in their backup module, you can use them, but if you are looking for a restore also from the backup location directly, then this may not be helpful. I got your point that you want to perform a backup and store the backup on a remote location, but do you also want to retain the backup on your server.?

    Please note, this backup configuration will only useful for backing up and not for restoring it. If you want to facilitate restoration also, then you can check the additional backup plugins those are provided but are not free.

    Hello,

    Google drive was added as a remote backup destination type in cPanel version 66. You can read more about how to configure backups and setup remote destinations at:

    Backup Configuration - Version 66 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Note the "Retain backups in the default backup directory." option referenced on this document.

    Thank you.
