    I have 2 cpanel servers, but I use both drives on each machine for content. Is there a way to have an additional server setup for backup purposes only? Is it possible to automate the process to run weekly backups? The restore function would have to be easy to do as well. I'm sure someone else has had to do something like this.

    Thanks!

    does anyone know how to do this?

    I am not much of a programmer if someone wants to make a couple of bucks I will pay for this.... ;)

    I would be looking for a shell script that will run the daily backup and ftp it to another location.

    Do a Google search for a script called Reoback which should suit you fine.

    If you can't find it let me know and I'll search you out the .tar.

    There isn't a backup directory though... I use both drives on each machine for content. This is the issue :)

    I need a script that will...
    1) create a backup.
    2) store the backup on a different machine.

    I cannot use the WHM tool because I have no /backup drive or any way to add one.
