how to add backup sever


Recommended Posts

Not sure what you are saying here ... like a live standby hot backup? Or just a way to backup the important data?


At the very least you should backup your database. Someone else might want to jump in here, but, I think if you have a db dump and backup of WHMCS directory you can pretty much get everything back up installing from scratch.


What I do on another UNIX server is:


Regular rsync of directory w/ WHMCS install

mysqldump --all-databases -u (username) -p -h (ip of db host) > backup.(date)


The MySQL database (and firewall) has permissions to allow this remote host to connect to it.


If you don't have a database dedicated to billing, you may need to customize that mysqldump command a little bit.
