    Hi all

    I was just wondering, is it possible to use Bzip2 instead of Gzip for the WHM automated backups?

    That is not natively supported at this time. You are welcome to put in a feature request for this at: http://bugzilla.cPanel.net

    Go on, have a guess
    You'd have to run a modified version of /scripts/cpbackup as, AFAIK, there're no options to change the compression utility.
