    What would the path be for the WHM weekly and monthly backups?
    Assuming that the backup destination is /backup
    Daily backups go into /backup/2014-11-12/accounts/*.tgz
    What would monthly and weekly look like?

    I'm writing some s3 scripts, and whenever i trigger a forced backup, it saves the path like a daily.
    I could have sworn monthly's get saved to /backup/monthly/accounts/*.tgz

    Hello :)

    The backups are stored in a directory named after the date of the backup generation, even for weekly and monthly backups. The legacy backup system uses the "weekly" and "monthly" backup directory names.

    Thank you.
