    Hello Everyone

    I tried my best to search, but I can't find any one talking about this, and I need to figure out a solution. On my VPS I setup a WHM backup with a copy off site to Google Drive (via whm backup).

    The issue is that apparently the Transport whm does to google drive is taking up too many connections and my VPS provider asked me to limit the out going connections (it had flagged a node watch DDOS protection apparently).

    I can't find anything both on google API side or on WHM/CPANEL side to limit the connection of the out going transport script that copies the backup to Google.

    Could any one help me figure out a solution? be it maybe pre-zip the backup, so it just transfer one big file, or limit to maybe 10 at a time or something?

    Thank you .

    Hello :)

    Perhaps i explained this incorrectly (english is not my first language). let me quote and reply so it's easier to understand.

    "the backup works in a way that that the transport is done after the backup is complete, so it may not be making much connections at a time.."
    Yes that is correct, WHM runs the backup, then at the END of the backup process it run a "transport" script that copies the backup just made to an off site location (I setup google drive as the offsite).

    "I don't think there is any limit for the number of connection"

    That is the issue, when the transport script runs it will push as many connections as it can transferring the backup to the offsite drive (google via drive api in this case) .. THAT's the issue i need help with, I need to figure out how to "limit" or "throttle" this trasfer, as it makes too many connections on my VPS.


    (thanks for your reply anyhow 27/7)
