    I have two questions on cpanel backup system:

    Q 1) I configured ftp remote backup with this path parameter:

    FTP Backup Directory: /backupvps1/cpbackup
    and Backup Destination: /backupvps1

    I checked the ftp space and verified that backup files are correct stored but now I go WHM -> Backup -> Restore BAckups and system return this message:

    Sorry, there are no backups located at /backupvps1/cpbackup

    I think that I mistake parameters in configuration backup?


    Q 2) I use backup cpanel system with a schedule Weekly but now I want use a manual cron for run cpbakup every day for a specific account user (not all accounts but only one), can I do?

    thank you

    To restore your cpanel account, simply copy the backup file from the FTP backup to the cPanel machine in /home and from your whm, WHM > Backup > Restore a Full Backup/cpmove file for restoration.

    Other way to restore is login to your server with ssh and perform the below commands :

    If you get any error like account already exist, you can restore account forcefully using below command.

    Replace username with your cpanel account username


    And for your daily single user backup you will have to use custom FTP backup script

    ok, I thought that cpanel can get backup file from remote ftp, ok not is problem.

    for daily backup I can run /scripts/postcpbackup every day but how I can send this file to remote ftp backup?

    my remote ftp backup don't support ssh and I don't can use scp

    Hello :)

    Could you let us know which version of cPanel you are using? You can check this with a command such as:

    Code:
    # cat /usr/local/cpanel/version
    The feature you are seeking (the ability to store local and remote backups) is available in cPanel 11.38. More information on the improved backup system is available at:

    11.38 Release Notes - Improved Backup System
    Backup Improvements 11.38

    cPanel version 11.38 is currently only available in the "EDGE" and "CURRENT" release tiers.

    Thank you.
