Backups are a lifesaver when it comes to computer terminology.  Yes, time and again the importance of taking regular backups is emphasized.  There have been cases where some file or directory has been accidentally deleted or some data loss has occurred due to some unforeseen circumstances.  In such cases, having a backup will restore all the data safely.   There are various methods to configure a backup be it daily, weekly, or monthly.  Besides, sometimes due to insufficient space availability in the server, some of the data can be transferred to a remote server.  This action will save precious space on the server. 

The process to configure Interserver backup – FTP destination is as follows:

i.                    As a root user, log in to WHM.

ii.                  Then go to Home Menu. Select Backup and then Backup Configuration.

iii.                This will take you to Additional Destination.  Select FTP from under the Destination Type.

iv.                 Select the ‘Create New Destination’ button.

v.                   A window will open wherein details of the remote server and other information must be entered.  Once the required information is entered, click on the ‘Save and Validate Destination’ button.

vi.                 Select ‘Save Configuration’.

vii.              After this action, the transfer will begin to take effect.

To be on the safe side, it is better to check if the transfer is being done or not by running a manual backup.   There is a command to activate the manual backup, which is ‘/usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup -force’.  By activating this command, a new log file will be received wherein the details about the backup and transfer process can be seen.
