Full Backup, Can I Restore With No Modifications

Jul 8, 2009

I have inherited a server that has somewhat non-standard config, e.g. NFS mount and lighthttpd. I don't have a handle on all the way it is setup quite yet.

So my question is: If I rsync backup the hard disk to an offsite backup, then in case of a crash, can I restore the whole thing (again using rsync) without any tweaking necessary (which I may not be able to do). In other words, would the webserver start working without any tweaks?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Full System Restore With Rsync - Restore Safe?

Mar 23, 2015

Would like to know what are the dangers of backing up and restoring full entire system backups (with plesk installed) to another server with a different ip address? Will the restored plesk setup operate properly and offer an ip address change in the system, or will there be any pre-requisites required such as manual ip changing within the system core files?

What Constitutes A Full Backup Of The Website?

Mar 1, 2009

I am trying to download my website on to my system since i am moving servers. I tried to download the full backup using cpanel but the size of the file is 610 MB and since i have a slow connection, it means me downloading the file the whole night. While i dont mind doing that, the connection has broken thrice (once when i had downloaded 517 MB).

So i have decided to download it bit by bit. I would like to know what files i will have to download...i can think of just two...the public html folder and my database..is that it? or should i be downloading any other files?

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.

So I Do An RSync Backup - How Do I Restore It?

May 3, 2008

Backing up a server is obviously very important. Lets say I do a daily rSync backup and eventually my server HDD crashes, I know it isn't just a 'one click' job to restore my backup but what is it necessary to do in order to carry out a complete and effective restore back to how it was?

A step-by-step 'tutorial' on restoring an rSync backup would be helpful not just to me but to many 'would-be' server administrators.
