This is now available in the SPanel API and soon it will be available in the graphic interface for SPanel users.

It would be interesting to be able to make backups in Google Drive


Can you post a link to the SPanel API docs? I'm not finding it via search.


The backups functionality has been improved and users can now choose where the backup will be saved - locally or on a remote FTP server. The user may also enter an email address to be notified once the backup has been uploaded.

Additional options were also added - the user can choose what data to be included in the backup and you can now skip databases or files/emails.

We also added an option for the user to remove the generated local backups from the SPanel User Interface directly.

SPanel will show an error message if there isn't enough free disk space on the server or in the user account instead of starting the backup generation and filling up the disk.


we can't find it yet


It will be updated on the existing VM's next week.


it exist, doesn't work for me on remote server.
any body try it yet ? 


It is supposed to work. Please contact technical support and they'll assist you.


Can i set spanel to take backup on friday once a month and push to contabo or remote server via scp command even google drive will do but we would rather have servers so we can ssh to it later so we host all our backups with contabo or aws so please let me know

your team upon asking told us to do manual backup one by one for over 100 websites we host with you this will require us to hire one person doing this daily for a month this is not practical not efficient either

in an idea world we need it to be 

1. go to spanel account on the vps

2. enable the remote backup

3. which will ask the remote server details and port and password

4.  time tot ake backup using a calendar and daily or monthly and thatsit

so incase we lose our backups or something happens to your servers or unstability around europe we have the files always backedup 

we did something similar using dropbox apis but we really need to se your apis so please share the Documentation API to see if you don't have this feature yet


Once the new backup system is ready you will be able to configure remote backups to be stored on any server in the world via rsync. You will also be able to configure how often those backups get generated, how many recovery points you will keep, which accounts to backup, which databases. The new backup system is pretty flexible and allows you to choose a backup policy that fits your needs.


Hi! I I am very interested too. I understand we still miss the UI, right? I can't see it anywhere yet. I think it is important to have a nice and simple UI in sPanel that allow us to setup the automatic backups, in an easy way. I should add that I would be awesome if you could add some compatibility with Amazon S3 buckets, so we can automatically upload backups there.
