to be honest I just chose linode because im familiar with them from using their vps in the past and they’re known for quality and savings.
I’ll be more than happy to look into backblaze since they’re already in the system.
I only responded with linode because it looked like you wanted feedback of what people were interested in usin but I’ll look backblaze.
For addons onetime payment option I was asking before possibility to change IP for subscription, if move other VPS provider. I was told that that’s not possible because some people might misuse that so I decided not to buy that. Any possibility make possible change server IP for that subscription like once year? That way people cant abuse subscription and if I need some reason change VPS provider like in one year I wont waste my money?
Like me I only use email debugger other option not that necessary but wont hurt to have those if get on time deal work…
The majority of my sites aren’t Wordpress, unfortunately which means I’m stuck with just SFTP or Local backups. I have tried everything but SFTP just doesn’t work, same issue as these posts 1, 2, 3.
Because of this I don’t use CP backups. My current backup method is scheduling Chronosync on my Mac to SFTP into my server and syncing folders, and then on my Mac, creating copies/retention of these offsite copies. It’s not ideal, and I don’t have a good way of backing up databases, and mail.
Really hoping we can use Backblaze in V2.
Do you think prepare possibility for set backup for Admin? I think about one place where can you set type of backup for all sites where you can choose how often make incentermal backup and just run.
Because when you have a lot of website is take a lot of time enable backup site by site.
I migrated all my backups and projects to GCP and i’m currently enjoying it more than aws.
I also use wasabi for long-term backups, due to the incredible 1TB capacity without access limitation.
I believe they are the best options, especially gcp. But of course, that’s just my opinion based on the experiences I’ve had, but also analyzing other opinions on the Internet, I realized that they are in fact the best, at least these days.
The current SFTP always defaults to user “root” so fixing that to allow any user name would be great.
Because of the SFTP user name fault, my current backup strategy is daily backup to local folder, delete older than 5 days and then sync using rclone to the preferred backend. That is currently SFTP with added encryption by rclone so backups are secure regardless of where they are stored.
There was some discussion a while back to integrate rclone into the CP backup giving the massive backend compatibility of rclone. Usmannasir, is that still an option or is it complicating things too much?
Fair enough, one step at a time. The non root user would be a real addition for the moment.
I can’t say it enough how much I appreciate what you and the team have created in Cyberpanel and the time you have spent on it. The odd bug can be worked round but the core is a solid CP that ticks more boxes than almost all CP’s.
Email notifications on failed backups
Current solution fails silently, which happened a few times. Mostly my fault, but it scares me that backups can fail for days or even weeks without me knowing.
Link backups schedules to packages
It would be nice to be able to select default backup schedules for packages and having new websites added to the schedule automatically.
This would make it possible to offer daily backups for high tier clients and weekly for low tier clients easily. And you won’t have to worry about forgetting to add a website to the backups.
Cleanup temporary backups files
Currently the backup creates random files and doesn’t cleanup after itself. The files are small, but a million small files… I’m sure you get the point.
Email backups in separate schedule
I’m not sure if email is included in the backup now. But it would be nice to be able to separate it from the rest.
Have only one backup menu in the Cyberpanel backend
There are multiple locations for different backups now. Would be nice to have them in one place
Incremental backups on Wordpress backups
I couldn’t find it in the current solution, so I’m just adding it here. I use the Wordpress backups on S3 Wasabi. I backup the DB hourly and files daily. Having an incremental option for files would drastically decrease my backup storage size.
Backup retention on S3
This is not working out of the box but would be a requirement if you ask me.
