    I have a dedicated WHM server with several dev accounts. I have the WHM backup wizard configured to have 2 weekly backups saved to a secondary drive. EAch backup is setup to run on sundays. I just did a fresh install of a magento store for testing purposes but is it possible to manually have the backup system run again without using the scheduled time?

    Thanks

    Hello :)

    You can force a backup generation from the command line as "root" with the following command:

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

    I am happy to see that command is helpful. Thank you for updating us with the outcome.
