Overview

This report clarifies the retention behavior of cPanel and WHM’s reinforcement framework. You can alter this conduct in WHM’s Backup Configuration interface (WHM >> Home >> Backup >> Backup Configuration).

How backup retention works

The framework has two maintenance modes: the default reinforcement maintenance conduct and carefully authorized maintenance. The two practices guarantee that the framework spares the measure of fruitful reinforcements that you set in WHM’s Backup Configuration interface. In any case, the default reinforcement maintenance conduct will hold that number of effective reinforcements, alongside fizzled reinforcements, until the following fruitful reinforcement finishes. This implies the framework could hold various reinforcements bigger than the sum that you set in the Backup Configuration interface.

When the strictly-enforced retention behavior encounters failed backups, it keeps at least one effective reinforcement, but deletes any backups that surpass the retention limit that you set in WHM’s Backup Configuration interface. Since the framework won’t outperform as far as possible, we recommend that you enable strictly-enforced retention if you have limited space on your server. To empower strictly-enforced retention, select the strictly enforce retention, regardless of backup success setting in WHM’s Backup Configuration interface.

Default backup retention behavior

When cPanel and WHM finishes a reinforcement, the framework erases the most established reinforcement. At the point when the framework created reinforcement fizzles, the framework will keep the fizzled reinforcement, it won’t erase the most established reinforcement, and will retain the most seasoned reinforcements. This conduct guarantees that the framework keeps at any rate one effectively completed reinforcement.

After the next backup reinforcement completes, the system will delete the oldest backups to return to the desired number of reinforcements.

Backup retention behavior with the Strictly enforce retention setting

With carefully implemented retention, cPanel and WHM will erase the most seasoned reinforcement when the framework finishes a reinforcement. However, when the framework produced reinforcement comes up short, the framework will keep the fizzled reinforcement and erase the most seasoned reinforcement. Additionally, it won’t retain the most established reinforcement, aside from the last fruitful reinforcement. This conduct guarantees that the framework keeps at least one effective reinforcement.

After the next backup reinforcement completes, the system will delete the oldest backups to return to the desired number of reinforcements.
