Web hosting company is providing backup as courtesy. Website and emails are hosted in same server. Clients are using less space for their website data and storing their emails in web server. Following is the example of disk usage:

20G ./mail

33M ./public_html

Now, company do not want to take backup of their clients' email data and want to take all backup except mail folder.

I want to request this feature as GUI in WHM backup configuration. This will help in

- saving more space of server (backup server)

- save time while backing up website data

Adding this to the UI is an interesting take, but I wanted to mention that this is possible already with the use of cpbackup-exclude.conf files (per-user and server-wide)


Interesting, I didn't noticed it. Will it be possible to add it in GUI?


It's certainly possible, but isn't something we're working on right now. If and when that changes, I'll make sure everyone knows!
