    Need To Clarify Backup Retention

    Hey guys, I am setting a backup plan for a server and I need to clarify backup retention. If I select my backup interval as weekly and select my backup to run Sunday and Wednesday and my backup retention is Weekly and Monthly, does that mean my backups will be overwritten every month? This is in WHM.

    Thanks,
    Darren
    Have a good day.

    Darren,

    https://www.hostingzoom.com/clients/docs/whm.pdf (if you can access it - if not, PM me for 1.1Mb PDF OR visit cpanel.com as they should offer it, too).

    However, it really doesn't say much:

    backups.
    • Monthly - WebHost Manager performs only monthly backups.
    I vote for the monthly overwrite (but would eliminate the weekly).

    Ah yes I remember now, I must select Weekly and monthly retention. That way it will keep backups of at least a month of weekly backups.

    Thanks for clarifying this for me and helping me 'remember'.
    Have a good day.
