    Hi,

    I'm looking into setting up backups in WHM for the first time was wondering what data is covered by the backups. Sorry if this seems like a strange question, but then that's what newbies are all for!

    I notice that the options of choosing what to backup include:

    - Backup Accounts
    - Backup Config Files
    - Sql Databases

    I guess the the options of "Sql Databases" and "Backup Config Files" are rather self-explanatory, however "Backup Accounts" is a bit vague. Does this mean just the account information, or does it include all of the accounts' data (all files within each account and pop and imap mailbox data and content)?

    This questions has arisen as one of my clients primarily uses imap and if the hard drive were to die, along with it would go his imap boxes and their content.

    I've tried having a look around on the forums here, but I can't seem to find anything conclusive.

    Thanks to anyone who can shed a little light on this subject.

    Backup Accounts includes the individual account with all its database + mails + evrything related to the account.
