NT cPanel Backup an Optimized backup script by Nixtree by using the cPanel backup utility to avoid the load issues caused due to the normal scheduled cPanel backup. The accounts with large size takes long time to complete the backup, also consumes high server resources for archiving the huge account. Most of the case, most of the space is consumed by public_html and mails and in some cases databases too. So we are using the pkgaccnt script with skipping home directory to speed up the backup process. Also taking the rsync copy of the home directory to get all the data.
By default 3 retention of backups are keep by the script, daily, weekly and monthly. First backup require some time to rsync the data, however, it is less than normal cPanel backup. Since we are using rsync daily backups, it will be faster from second day itself, since only changes need to be copied over. Same case with second week and second month for weekly and monthly backups.
We can install the following steps for installing the script.
mkdir /opt/ntbackup/ wget -O /opt/ntbackup/nt_backup.sh https://www.nixtree.com/download/scripts/nt_backup.sh chmod 755 /opt/ntbackup/nt_backup.sh
