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?
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?
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.
when i want to Restore full backup see this error Restore for cpmove-wwwpakh.tar.gz Searching /home.... checked 25 files..... No Restorable archives found! Searching /usr/home.... checked 0 files..... No Restorable archives found! Searching /web.... checked 0 files..... No Restorable archives found! Searching /home2.... checked 0 files.....

This feature will restore full backups, cpanel backups and cpanel move files in the format of: cpmove-user.tar.gz, user.tar.gz, backup-date_time_user.tar.gz The files must be in one of these directories on the server: /home,/usr/home,/web,/home2,/home3,/root,/usr
You must upload the file to one of the above locations before using this feature.
