OK, you’ve got a load of clients running wordpress under cpanel. And your VPS includes a tonne of space, so your backing up with whm to /backup. Or even better, the hosting company gives you some ftp space, and you have whm backing up to that.
But recently you started to consider what if something went wrong with the hosting company ? what if the server broke ? or what if they went into receivership ? what if you started arguing over invoices ?
You need an offsite backup, that the hosting company don’t control, that is safe, expandable and reliable.
The plan is to use whm to backup to amazon s3.
Amazon s3 is the best cloud storage around, it’s encrypted, fast, unlimited space, reliable, file size goes up to 5Tb.
This is how you use amazon s3 for backup for whm/panel
