The Memset Managed Backup service provides external backups of data from your linux server. This service will log into your server each night and sync data from your server to a dedicated Memset backup server. The directory or directories that are synced will depend on the mode of operation that is selected.
For linux and cPanel servers, we offer four different modes of backups. For cPanel/WHM users, we recommend the /backup mode as cPanel will store its backups under this directory.
Please note, the Memset backup system will not follow symlinks.
You can change the backup mode for your server by:
The Memset backup system for linux servers does not take backups at a fixed time for each server. Rather, the backup can be taken any time after 11 pm. This is why it is very important that any data that is created on the server for backing up by Memset e.g. a database dump, should be ready before 10:45 pm to ensure that it is copied correctly by the Memset backup system.
If the backup data is created after 10:45 pm there is a chance that the Memset backup system will either take backup up before the data is created or during its creation, either of which means your data will not be backed up.
