Pre and Post programs/scripts to run before and after backup

Joe Saladino shared this idea 3 years ago
Already Exists

As a cPanel user, I would like to be able to add a script to the backup process so that it would clean things up before a backup and/or run other functions after the backup is complete and automate the process.


backup is such a nice program which is backing up a lot of things already, it might be nice to have a pre and post program or script one could configure to run just before and after the backup program. This would allow us to clean things up prior to backup and do other functions after the backup is complete.

Greetings! I'm pretty sure you can do this through existing hooks. Documentation is at
