The problem is, the system is retaining more backups than I am telling it to, and I don't understand why. Was cleaning up the server a few weeks back and noticed that there were 3 weekly backups in the /backup directory, when WHM was configured to have 2. I deleted one and told WHM to retain only one weekly backup instead, hoping that it meant how many "old" backups, not how many backups total (we want to have 2 backups total).
The next week I checked after the backup and it had 3 backups again. We only want 2! I have it set to 1, which is as low as it will let me set it (I can't set it to 0). What am I doing wrong here and why is it keeping 3 backups no matter what I tell it to do?
Not sure if this is relevant, but after some Googling, I also noticed that there is no "postcpbackup" file in the /scripts directory. Is there supposed to be and might this be the reason my backups are not being cleared?
Thanks in advance for any help.
