Exclude Directroy From CPanel Backup

Create cpbackup-exclude.conf in the user’s home directory (/home/user-id) to exclude files from a cPanel backup. This file is only used if you make a complete site back up from cPanel. Here are the basic rules for the content of the file:

  • Each item to skip must be on it’s only line in the file.
  • Directories should not have a trailing slash.
  • Each entry must have the full path to the file or directory.
