    I've read on the forum that WHM 11.25 would have renewed backup functionality. Could anybody elaborate on this? I am really looking foward to alternative backup solutions (especially to Amazon S3 without the hassle) to FTP.

    I would like to hear more about this too! Backups in WHM and cPanel need to be revamped desperately. I would love to have a streamlined S3 solution.

    Or at least something smart which allows for easy incremental backup and restore (just take an aim at R1Soft ;)).

    You can check bqbackup.com. If you have secondary disk attached to the server, you can even write a simple script to backup files using rsync with incremental option. So the modified files will only be copied over.

    I am aware of the current methods of backing up, which is a widely covered issue and stops with rsync and bqbackup.com (or a reseller) or duplicity and s3, neither of which are easy to work with out of WHM/cPanel. Besides that, for the record, a secondary disk attached to a server is not a good backup method. You'll notice if your power supply fails and backfires into your server.

    The point of this thread is getting more information and discussion about the said-to-be upcoming revamped backup functionality in cPanel/WHM 11.25.
