Hello,

We have a question about backups via WMH.

In our current configuration we make a backup every 2 days and we have limited the storage of these backups to 4.



We also send these backups to a remote server via FTP!

We want to know if we can configure WHM's backup tool to not store backups locally and only send them to the remote server via FTP?

We want to know if this configuration is possible because storing the backups locally takes up a lot of disk space on our VPS server!

Can you tell us how to do it?

Thanks for your help.

Julian

Hey there! There is an option for that with the "Retain Backups in the Default Backup Directory" option. If you have that option enabled, it will keep the local backup copies as well as transfer the data to the remote destination.

You can find more details on the configuration options here: Backup Configuration | cPanel & WHM Documentation
