Ability to define backup folder name format shared this idea 4 years ago
Open Discussion

As a server administrator I would like the ability to define the folder format in which my backups are stored, allowing me to more easily integrate into remote storage options outside of cPanel & WHM.

For example, another option could be added to the backup configurations:

  1. How do you want the name of the destination folders?
  2. Use folders in date format [ ]
  3. Use daily, weekly and monthly folders. [X]


I like this idea, since it was previously easier to mount different devices as /backup/daily, /backup/weekly, and so on, but I think the only culprit here is that daily backups are not stored within the daily folder, while the others seem to work in that way.
