  • AutoBackup With Softaculous & CPanel Advice


    I wanted to make an automatic backup with Cpanel and I achieved this by following the applications in the screenshots below. I hope it is useful to everyone.​

    1 - Set up automatic backup in the Softaculous app.

    2 - Set the backup frequency by entering CronJob in the CPanel application.
    PHP Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/php -d disable_functions="" "/usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/softaculous"/cli.php --backup --auto=--insid=501_66465 

    3 - Since there is a backup limit in the application, I wrote the command to move the backup files to the CRMBACKUP (i created for olds) folder I created using CronJob, according to the backup frequency I make.
    PHP Code:
    mv /home/alaakade/softaculous_backups/*tar.gz /home/alaakade/CRMBACKUP 

    4- I created a separate CronJob to delete files older than 10 days.
    PHP Code:
    find /home/alaakade/CRMBACKUP -mtime +10 -exec rm {} \; 
    That is all. I am not a developer. So I can only do this much

    Well done, but have you tested it? Make sure you try to restore it and it working!

    Else you might have backup of just corruption!

      Thanks. I tested. When want to recover, Just move file to old location and use the softaculous app.
