Improve backups

The current implementation in Spanel is nice but too basic; it's missing important features such as:

  • Incremental backups for both files and databases
  • Remote backups to Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, etc. Currently, only FTP is available.

These features are crucials for all webmasters and administrators managing customer accounts.

The SPanel backups are incremental for files and each user may browse & restore individual files and databases from any of the available restore points. The user may also generate manual backups from SPanel which can be saved locally on the server or to a remote FTP server. Google drive, Dropbox etc. are not supported however if we see users' demand, we'll add that functionality.


Are you planning to add S3 storage support? That's where all backup products are moving to for cheaper and scalable storage. Jetbackup 5 also support this now.


Totally agree on some form of backup workaround possible with S3 or even wasabi who are great for off-site backups. 


Any remote storage with SSH/Rsync will work. That's the most efficient way of generating incremental backups so that no storage space is wasted.


Dear Team, 

The spanel Team must improve the backup. We want an option to select ports, or we can enter a specific port for the backup. We need the port selection option in the backup to suppose we have a server that supports SFTP connection, not FTP, and then we can,t backup our spanel data to that server. Because the port SPanel backup work on FTP port 21, but the SFTP port might be different, like 22,23, or other, this is necessary to improve the backup. I hope the Team will look into this matter. We will get an improved backup soon.

Thank You


Now the Spanel license is public can one configure their production server with a remote backup server via SSH using a plugin?
