    Hello,

    I have a backup server outside KH. I do daily backups using cpanel backup script ( ftp ).

    The problem is that this spend too much bandwidth. Is there a better backup option in this case?

    Thanks,

    Fernando.

    Unless you have physical access to the server in the datacenter there is no method of backing up your data which will not consume bandwidth.

    Anytime you move data off your server you are going to consume bandwidth. Personally, I have a backup system (using a script I got off the cpanel.net forums) that spreads the backup over 7 days, so if you have 70 accounts, the script backs up 10 accounts per day. That way the oldest backup will never be more than 7 days old. If you have any accounts that are required to be backed up daily, you can do those at the same time.

    I'm only using 10% of my allocated bandwidth, so it isn't a problem to me.

    I tried to use remote ftp and I see it communicates with my remote server because daily and weekly and mothly folders are made but when I look at the tar.gz in my remote folder all I see is zero bytes.
    Any body knows How I can acheive remote backup?
