Rolling Update Work Window: 10:00PM PST (GMT -8:00) - 4AM PST
Scope of Work:
Cpanel introduced a new backup system which is going to replace it's legacy backup system. At some point in the near future, CPanel will no longer support their legacy backup system. In an effort to stay ahead of this, we will be converting the backups from the legacy system to the new backup system every night. We don't anticipate any loss of backups, but it's always advisable to retain your own backups as well. We have tested and verified the upgrade and don't expect any issues. Dedicated and VPS clients please contact us to schedule upgrades to this new backup platform.
The new Backup system now functions with a new user interface (UI) and having the following features:
The new Backup system also now supports multiple incremental backups.
Retention behavior - When a complete backup finishes, the system deletes the oldest backup. When the system backup partially completes (fails), the system will not delete the oldest backup, and it will continue to retain the oldest backups. This procedure ensures that the system retains at least one retained complete backup.
After the next complete backup finishes, the system will delete the oldest backups to return to the desired number of backups.
** This upgrade will run nightly on the stated start date during the work window described above until upgrades have been completed on all affected server devices.
