R1 Backup schedule review
Currently we backup our cPanel servers on the hour every hour, but has its disadvantages when it come to restore points.
Currently we keep 120 restore points per server, so currently this means that you only have 5 days of restore points if something goes wrong. With the recentÂ WordPressÂ vulnerabilityÂ thatÂ plaguedÂ allÂ WordPressÂ installs that were not kept up to date, and the fact that some customersÂ didn’tÂ realise that this had happened until weeks had passed R1 was of little use at this point.
We have decided to give you the option of a differentÂ schedule, and need your feedback by November 9th before we make the changes. Based on the popular feedback we will action accordingly. We will notÂ be ableÂ to make differentÂ schedulesÂ per customer so its important toÂ understandÂ that theÂ majorityÂ vote will affect everyone on the servers covered.
Based on the feedback poll we are now setting up all servers to backup every 6 hours and to keep 120 restore points. This will give you the option to restore from any 6 hourly point over the last 30 days.
