    Hi,

    I've configured WHM > Backup Configuration to back up every Sunday and move it to Amazon S3.

    This works well and I have a copy of all of the accounts in my bucket under account_name.tar.gz.

    All good so far.

    I've also got backup System Files enabled and these are getting backed up to /backup/weekly/year-month-day folders every week and contain my system files.

    All good... Except that these are not being compressed and I would have thought that they would also have been moved off site to S3.

    So. How do I configure the settings to compress the system weekly backups (as well as the accounts) and move them to the S3 bucket along with my account backups?

    I've attached my most recent log from /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup

    many thanks for your help and advice (again),

    Hedley

    Hi Michael,

    thanks for that, I'd missed the enable system backup option in the additional destination.

    Will see what it does on Sunday and if in the unlikely situation I continue to have issues, I will update the ticket.

    thanks,

    Hedley
