    I need to reconfigure backup via the command line. I no longer have access via the WHM interface due to DNS has already propagated just wondering how I would do that.

    Functional DNS is not required to access WHM; you may use the same public IP address for SSH to also access WHM; in the following examples simply replace "$server" with the server's public IP address:
    Code:
    https://$server:2087/
    http://$server:2086/
    What dalem has indicated is the correct path to the cPanel backup configuration file; this file (at "/etc/cpbackup.conf") may be edited provided the modifications are valid. To determine what is valid, simply access WHM on any system, configure backups as needed, and then manually inspect the values saved in the configuration file.
