    Hello,

    I'm new to cPanel and I'm wondering if what I'm trying to accomplish is possible. For starters, I'm using a remote FTP server to backup all accounts on some interval. I'd like to also back up configuration files, but WHM will not allow me to do that via remote FTP. I would like to run that backup locally, and then use a cronjob to copy the files off. Is this possible? Should I be doing backups another way?

    My goal is to have all account data backed up, as well as system configuration data. I have a remote FTP server that I can use for storage.

    Does anyone have any advice?

    Ahh yes, I had read a few of these, but it seemed odd that cPanel didn't have the functionality to have multiple backups scheduled. I was hoping to take advantage of cPanels ability to manage the retention of files and whatnot, but I guess I'll have to build this into a script or something.

    Thanks for the help.
