    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for the help!
    I've also encountered another bug, while using the backup_destination_add function with the following command:
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/whmapi1 backup_destination_add name=OFF-SITE-BACKUP type=SFTP host=backup.somedomain.com upload_system_backup=1 port=someSSHport path=some/path timeout=60 username=someUSER authtype=password password=somePASS
    System Backup are still being de-activated for that additionnal backup location.
    I have to manually activate the System Backup for that location manually through WHM.

    Thanks,
    -Luc

    Hello,

    The correct value to use for this parameter is "On" instead of "1". You can change the following entry:

    Code:
    upload_system_backup=1
    To:

    Code:
    upload_system_backup=on
    I've opened a case with our documentation team to correct this mistake.

    Thank you.
