    Hello,

    I want to setup weekly remote backup of one complete account on my server including all the files and mySQL databases,

    I am writing the things I am gonna select on "Configure Backup" page in WHM, I am not sure about some options so please check it and help me to configure it.


    Backup Status: Enabled
    Backup Interval : Weekly
    Backup Retention : I dont know about it, its automatically checked on "Monthly" can I removed it or not ?
    Days to run backup : Monday
    Remount/Unmount backup drive : Disabled
    Bail out if the backup drive cannot be mounted : Diabled
    Incremental backup : Disabled (Please give me some details about this option, enabling it will save the bandwidth ?)
    Backup Accounts : (Confused about it, I want only one account to back so what can I select ?)
    Backup Config Files : Diabled
    Sql Databases : Per Accounts Only (I have 2 databses in that account so will it create seperate databases in backup or will it combine them ?)
    Backup Raw Access Logs : Disabled
    Backup Type : Remote Ftp Server (Accounts Only)
    Ftp Backup Host : ftp.domainforbackup.com
    Ftp Backup User : username
    Ftp Backup Pass : password
    Ftp Backup Directory/Path : (Not sure about it, where will it make the backup file in the account of I will leave this feild blank, in public_html ?)
    Use Passive mode for Ftp transfers : (not sure about it, can I select disabled ?)
    Backup Destination : (Here its already /backup, do I need to changed it or its ok ?)

    Additional Questions :-

    - On the remote account, what format file will be created ? will it create a single file ?
    - On the second week, will it create another file for the backup or overwrite the backup file of last week ?

    Thanks
    Best Regards
    Hassan
