What's the best way to backup your files?


If you only have access to WHM or you only have a shared hosting account, what's the best way to backup all your accounts without causing so much server load?

Accounts can be backed up individually from cPanel.

If you want your own script reside on your end and ftp each cPanel (using cron) to another server. Here's my suggestion: http://whmeasybackup.com. You can have this script and backup your files to bqinternet, webbycart, rsyncpalace etc...

If you want a quicker implementation and still reliable solution, http://www.backomatic.com is my suggestion. I forgot the name of the competitor of this company but there's another one with similar concept though I heard a good feedback with backomatic.

You can configure remote ftp backup on the server. Also, you can manually take remote ftp backup from the cpanel of the account.

I would use an automated backup solution which a company owned by host gator offers and use incremental back ups so the server doesn't stress much

If I am going to make my own script to automate the backup, would I need to connect to SSH to do this?

How could I use incremental backup?

Thank you.
