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 :

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

/scripts/restorepkg --force username
Replace username with your cpanel account username


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

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

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.
