    Hello, I would like to create a backup of a home directory that does not include one of the directories within the home directory. Any advice on a simple way to do this? Some way to mark the unwanted directory so the backup utility ignores it?

    Thanks,

    Bob

    There are no options to leave out certain parts of the site. WHM does let you choose sites, but that's all the control there is.

    No problem. If you know perl, you could always modify the backup script. It doesn't change very often with updates.
