This article shows how to move backup creation and staging to a new location on the server.
1. Locate a directory on the server that contains enough space for your backups and staging directory.
Example (new disk mount on /new_backup):
$ df -h
/dev/mapper/centos00-root 50G 33G 18G 66% /
/dev/mapper/centos00-home 408G 197G 211G 49% /home
/dev/sdb1 497G 315G 182G 64% /new_backup <-- here
You may need to contact your Hosting Provider or System Administrator to acquire and mount more disk space on the server.
2. Log into WHM as 'root'.
3. Navigate to the following location:
WHM: Home -> Backup -> Backup Configuration
4. Modify the following two options, placing the new location in the text fields.
Default Backup Directory
Backup Staging Directory
5. Click 'Save Configuration' at the bottom.
