How to force start cPanel backup in new backup system (version 11.38)

cPanel have introduced a new backup system in 11.38, this is most robust, have more options and is easy to use. I personally like the option of additional backup destinations.

You can configure new backup system from “configure backup” where as old one is still in place but has been moved to “legacy backup”.

If you have to force start new backup system, you can use

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup --force

And if you are still using legacy backup system, it can be done using the same

/scripts/cpbackup --force

  1. Any chance there is a way to force a backup (using command line) for new backup system but for specific user (and unsuspended user) without having to modify selected users in WHM?

    1. You can use the following to make a backup of a single domain:

      /scripts/pkgacct username /backup/location/

      Edit the username and the backup location above with the relevant details and run it via command line.
