    Hi,

    Is there a way to upload the daily backups to a different directory in the remote server...?

    Currently in WHM I have it set to backup the accounts daily and all the files gets uploaded to the default directory in the remote server (/cpbackup/daily).

    I want to it to upload to a different directory such as:
    /cpbackup/server1/daily/

    There got to be a way to do this.. but I don't know how.

    If you can help please post it.. I know I'm not the only one who needs this :D

    But this works only if you are using the same server to backup or a using a WHM server to do the backups..

    I have backup space and I can't create accounts.. I only have space..

    In this backup space I need the backups to be made in different directories.

    My FTP Backup script does this exactly because we found the remote FTP backup script build into WHM/cpanel to be useless. Setup your server to backup to the second hard drive then I setup a cron job to grab all the files and FTP them to where I want to a remote server :)

    PM me and I can share the script
