What are the fastest backup settings for a cPanel server? I have used the builtin backup for a number of years but have been experimenting with jetbackup. Which of these will be fastest?


Also which would be fastest when using an offsite repository for backups. With either cPanel backup or jetbackup. Jetbackup writes directly to the offsite repository.

Incremental Backup is always recommended for the backup configuration on cPanel server.

>> Also which would be fastest when using an offsite repository for backups.

This is something hard to answer but if the account size is smaller then compressed would be faster.

JetBackup is one of the best backup solutions and is capable of backing up all the account information of your cPanel account swiftly and efficiently. You may check this link for more details.

Incremental Backup is the best as after the full accounts have been initially backed up the system will then just backup any changes you have made since last backup.

But ALWAYS backup to a offsite or different server as no good doing a backup to the same server/account that is being backed up as if the server goes down then you have lost your accounts and the backups, if you have to backup to the same server/account then once this is complete then save it to your local drive or to a flash/pen drive, so you have a copy to restore if needed.
