    Hi folks, just a quick question..

    Can I force a backup within WHM? I dont see anywhere I can click to start an "out of cycle" backup.. Is that something that must be done from the CLI? if so, mind sharing that command with me?

    Thanks! have a great day!

    Hello :)

    You must use the command line to force a generation of backups. EX:

    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup --force
    Thank you.
