Re: How TO Setup Remote Backup

I would like to enable remote backup on my VPS as well. But I am still in the process of finding a backup server that is not too expensive to put all my backups.

Any recommendations?

Thanks,

I created an free f1 micro instance in Gcloud. It has 30GB HDD free storage.

Lowendspirit.com is the place to find server deals.
lowendbox.com (USA) is excellent value for a backup box.
Inception for UK storage.
The link should be letbox.com

Same problem here. I have all the remote backup settings in the green, I have logged in to my CWP using ssh and checked I can ssh into my backup server without being asked for credentials, and have waited for well over 24 hours. I have both "Enable Backup" and "Remote Backup" checked.

My /backup folder on CWP has been populated and looks good. My backup server has no added folders and no sign of any backups.

in the "Crontab for root users" list under "Server Settings/Crontab for root" I see the following entry

Code: [Select]
15 0 * * * /usr/local/cwp/php71/bin/php-cgi -d max_execution_time=100000000 -q /usr/local/cwpsrv/htdocs/resources/admin/include/cron_newbackup.php

which looks like its meant to run it at 15 mins past midnight but assuming it does run, I see no evidence of backup files on the remote machine.

As a stop gap until I can get this working, I have setup a cron job that executes the following

Code: [Select]
/usr/bin/rsync --no-i-r -e 'ssh -p 2223' --archive /backup/* user@my.domain.com:/home/bkup
every 24 hours at 2am so there should be more than enough time for it to complete. I'll setup another task to archive that data (it's a NAS I have at home).

reply @dualarrow

In my case I have a cheap VPS has 20Gb supposed to be my backup server for CWP, in CWP remote backup settings all are green,
then i check my backup VPS has a folder name "cwp_remote" under /root,,

has "daily""weekly""monthly""mysql", and each folder has users within it, but doesn't have any backup files.

Have you fixed this case?
Once it fixed I will change the remote server to my Home Linux as well

Is there any difference in using "Backup Configuration" or "NEW Backup (beta)"

As i can choose remote backups from the new menu also.

So shouldn't the old Backup be removed from the menu or is there a difference in what will be backed up?

thanks

"NEW Backup (beta)" is working better, Right now I'm testing this, I could use this new backup to save on my local server

You can also use it to save your backup to a UNC path, i save my backups to a NAS. I was asking because since about 2 years i am using CWP now this is still called "New Backup" and it is still beta, so for me it is also an old and i wonder why the "old" backup is still in there.

i thought the old one is backing up something more like CWP configs or something else but if they do the same, i don't understand why it is a beta for 2 years now

Painkiler88 you are right , I'm the same thinking of you, while the new backup(beta) is use SSH password which more easily to use compare the old one need download the key, New backup(beta)like to be un-native to CWP for years I guess it's going to be a lot works to merge in the existing Functions( restore backup...)
