Cpanel backup script

Anyone can suggest good and trustworthy script to backup cpanel account files & db to another server?

i know there is cpanel built-in backup and jetbackup, but both backup stored at cpanel hosting's server.

    WHM cPanel does not store in your server only if you tick the: Retain backups in the default backup directory. Otherwise after it transfer to remote/destination server it will delete all backups in your hosting server.

    JetBackup can be configured to store on a remote server, the same can the built-in cPanel functionality :-)

    Try JetBackup...

  • jetchiragjetchirag Member

    Are you end user or root? If root, jetbackup or built-in can be configured for remote location.

    If end user, there are plenty of short php scripts you'll find.

    Checkout, Restore Manager by GK-Root.

    I have used it before, and it worked just fine.

    jetbackup work well, and offer many remote options

    Need to install vps but no knowledge ? just pm me

    R1 soft works well, also you can store daily backups in a cost effective way.

  • Cpanel internal backup works perfect with FTP/NFS, make sure you are entering correct login creds and remote path. https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/68Docs/Backup+for+cPanel

    It worked as expected and suits me well, also their ticket support is great.

    It depends id you have root or not.

    If you don't, whmeasybackup as @isijosamua and @Ympker mentioned, works...ok. The problem isn't whmeasybackup (and I agree their support has been good), but rather cpanel's API.

    In fact, they don't even support backups in the current version of their API! You have to go back and use the deprecated v1 API.

    Really, it's cPanel making it hard to backup. whmeasybackup works great within the limitations of what cPanel provides.

    Die, cPanel, die.

    Interesting to hear :) So what Panel would you want to take the lead instead? Plesk or DA or another one?

    Agreed. Their API isn't the best one.

    Have encountered one or two incorrect documentation. They depreciated functions without releasing alternatives.

  • i am end user / reseller

    btw in some provider, i can find setting for jetbackup in whm reseller

    the cPanel backup API isn't deprecated - there's no deprecated warning in the API - it's correct they don't develop on API2 anymore, and if there's an existing function in UAPI, then they prefer that you use that one.

    But it surely isn't deprecated :-)

    cPanel will move things step by step to UAPI as they rewrite their core - if anyone wants to make that happen faster, go apply for a job at cPanel and see how fast you can rewrite a 20 year+ codebase without major breakage ;)

    Oh, it's in their v1 :( dammit - sorry for my rant then :|

    In that case, it's indeed retarded :-D
