In this tutorial, we’ll explain how to find your MySQL Backups storage location.
MySQL backups have configured within the following steps:
Step 1: Log to your WHM
Step 2: Search for the Backup
Step 3: Click on the Backup Configuration
Here, you will see the recent backups. First, you need to check where the backups store and what kind of MySQL backups have taken:
grep ‘BACKUPDIR\|MYSQL’ /var/cPanel/backups/config
cPanel stores the backups in backup-dir and they retained locally. As these backups are useful for users, it may be advisable to generate a more current backup of MySQL.
MYSQLBACKUP can return any of the following:
- Accounts – All the databases under the cPanel account are back up into the accounts’ backup easily.
- Dir- The MySQL data directory backup only if the custom data in directories which taken into account.
- Both- Every cPanel account has its databases backed up which directly into their backup, and the MySQL data directory backed up separately.
