    cPanel remote backup with rsync

    Hi, I want to perform rsync backups with cPanel and send these backups to a server that I have in a private switch (through a second network card)

    How should I configure cPanel and iptables to send backups to that server?

    Thanks.

    Why not setup NFS services on the backup destination and mount the directory on your cpanel server?

    Either way you would simply use the backend/private ip of the backup server which should automatically use the other NIC if things are setup correctly.

    A quick guide on NFS

    Do read and test things otherwise hire someone to do this for you.
    on the backup server
    install nfs and dependancies
    edit /etc/exports
    start portmap & nfs

    on the cpanel server
    install nfs-util and dependencies(portmap)
    start portmap
    edit /etc/fstab, add entry for the nfs mount
    mount the nfs share
    point cpanel backups to the mount dir

    I did what you indicate, the problem I encounter now is how to make the cPanel server send backups through the private network. Right now I can only do so through the public IPs.
