    I've noticed that since Site Publisher has new templates, its disk usage has increased tremendously. Usually there's a "backups" folder that takes up all the space. How/when is this created?

    Also, what's with the "powered by" link?

    Hello @stormy,

    Could you provide some more information on the disk space usage? For instance, is there a specific directory where you notice a significant increase, and if so, how much of an increase do you see?

    Information about the /home/$user/site_publisher/backups/ directory is documented at:

    Site Publisher - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Regarding the "Powered by cPanel's Site Publisher." link, is this something you'd like to see removed, or is it not working properly?

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the prompt reply! And sorry about my lack of clarity.

    The old version of Site Publisher with just 3 templates was causing hardly any disk usage. The new templates seem to have more resources, and really big images (1.5 MB) for "office.jpg", for instance.

    I think the problem is the backup feature. We are seeing users testing out Site Publisher and easily generating 100 MB of backup files. We do offer a stripped down plan (bundled with a domain registration) with just one email account, Site Publisher, and 100 MB disk space, so this is a bit of a problem! :) We've increased that plan to 250 MB.

    Maybe some limit in the backup size would be a good idea.

    I'd really like to see it removed. I don't really like to force advertising on customers, neither mine or someone else's. I hope this is possible in the near future.

    Hello @stormy,

    Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your experience with this feature.

    I recommend opening two separate feature requests for each suggestion so that Development can assess the requests and seek out specific information from you if necessary:

    Submit A Feature Request

    Feel free to post the request URLs here once they are approved.

    Thanks!
