Selecting cPanel accounts to backup

If you created a “cPanel Accounts Incremental” job, you will be able to backup your cPanel accounts to a remote / local destination.

In order to improve & optimize the backup process, you can choose which accounts to backup according to certain criteria.


  • All Accounts – backup all cPanel accounts on the server, you can choose specific accounts to exclude.
  • Specific accounts – backup *only* the selected accounts from a specified list.
  • Use backup rotation list – BackupManager can exclude users from backup if they exceed specified disk space / inodes. You can use the backup rotation list, but also “force” accounts to always backup.
  • Alphabetic backup – Backup only the accounts that where sorted out using A-Z search criteria. You can also choose accounts to always exclude.
