    I saw this query in my logs, executed by the root user:

    What is this? Is this how cpanel backs up my MySQL data? This could probably be the worst possible way of backing up a table -- why not simply use hotcopy or something is what I wonder.

    My question is, in WHM, under "Configure Backup" --> "Sql Databases (at least per accounts is needed to use the restore feature)", if I select the "MySQL Dir" option would it disable this ugly SQL dump, and use some other mechanism instead?
