I'm looking to change my backing-up process, mostly because the default cPanel system creates compressed files that are getting too big for my server's disk. If I understand correctly, incremental backups don't cause this issue because they don't compress everything into one file during the backup process. I was looking at JetBackup. How do the MySQL (technically I'm using MariaDB) backups work with it? I see that some backup systems have issues with database backups because there are ongoing processes happening while the backup is happening. How does JetBackup account for this? Also, would it be possible to restore a backed-up database to a new database on the server? For example, let's say one table in my database accidentally has all of its rows deleted. Could I restore a backup to a new database, copy the one table over as needed, and then delete that new database?
