CPanel Daily Backup: Load

May 5, 2008

I have my WHM/cPanel installation configured with daily and weekly backups. I checked at what time of the day the server load was at the minimum and configured the cPanel backup cron to run then.

The problem now is: Backing up a few hundred accounts results in a high server load. My server configuration:

Dual Processor Quad Core Xeon 5335 2.0GHz with 4GB RAM and 2 x 250GB SATA HDD hosted at SoftLayer.

The accounts are located on the first HDD and the backup archives are placed on the second HDD.

What can I do about this? I'd like to take daily backups of all accounts but not if my server load increases up to 10... That kind of renders the cPanel backup feature useless if it doesn't even work on a powerful server like this one...

Would it help if I use an application such as Auto Nice Daemon to give the backup process a lower priority? But then again that won't work on the MySQL dumps? And I think it's not a CPU problem but an I/O wait problem? Other processes have to wait for disk access because the disk-intensive backup process is running?

How To Disable Cpanel Full Backup

Jun 6, 2009

Whenever clients are generating full back up of their sites all at once and like 10x in one hour, its causing a severe spike in load in the servers

is there a way to disable the full backup in cPanel?

I know mellowhost is able to do this

I also saw this when i was searching google --


Additionally, you could just give server administrators the option of disabling
the gzipping of these user generated backups

I believe the gzip process is what usually kills the server when dealing with a
large site. Just tarring up the account would use more disk space, but would
keep processing and load usage down

I don't know how to do that though.

Also I use the Backup function in WHM to generate weekly backups of all my customers sites and FTPing to a remote server. I still want that function. I only want the generation of full backup in control panel be disabled.

How To Disable Generating Full Backup On CPanel

Jul 22, 2008

Is there a way you can just disable the Generate Full Backup link in the Backup section of CPanel, and not disable the Backup section completely?

Meaning, I just want to disable that one function a client has the ability to do, but I don't want to stop them from being able to download their home directory, mysql databases,etc.

One Time Cpanel Full Compress Backup

Jul 6, 2007

I wish to make a ONE-TIME full backup of all my accounts into /backup directory which is mounted to /dev/sdb1 (secondary drive)

What is the SSH command to execute this job? There's likely 100+ accounts in my server.

I currently already set a daily uncompressed backup inside my WHM.

So I do not want to modify them.

I just want to run a one-time compress full backup into /backup/july which I have already created as a new directory.

CPanel Full Backup Not Saving Home Directory

Sep 28, 2008

I am trying to migrate a server to a new host.

When I try to restore a full backup on my new host, NONE of the home directory files are making the move. Everything else is fine though.

I'm not getting any errors, so I don't have a clue as to why this isn't working.
