    Anyone using this with their setup? We recently started using it and can say it is a really nice option for automated backups, either local or use it with S3, DropBox or Google Drive. We set it up with S3 and so far has been a painless experience.

    We had been paying $20/mo for R1Soft for well over 2 years and come to find out there was a change in our hosts dashboard at some point and the service was never re-activated! That change had happened over a year ago, so basically wasted $240! Since we're on an unmanaged server it was more our fault for not keeping up to date and making sure it was running by checking periodically that the backups were good.

    Anyhow, the setup of JetBackup was simple enough and we have a piece of mind now that we have again more than one backup in case something bad happens!

    Quick screenshots of it.

    Are you still having issues with disk space, or is that a warning that hasn't been cleared yet?

    Is it all self-contained in cPanel??

    Do you have to setup/tweak things out of cPanel?

    I see the WHM shots of course, just curious..

    You will need SSH access to install the license and JetBackup. Setup is completely in WHM, in the cPanel account you have the ability to download the backup that's about it. In WHM you can restore backups on a per account basis. So it really is direct at resellers I'd say or in our case a server that runs many sites using WHM/cPanel.

    It's actually failing on one account because it can't overwrite a backup file "already exist cannot overwrite" or something will need to look again.

    Anyone willing to provide the backup destination should definitely use JetBackup, in my opinion

    Where did you get your R1Soft license from? $20/mo seems excessive for just one server. We're paying $6/server/month - they've just raised prices to around $15/server/month a couple months ago, but we've kept our original cost

    It was from our host when we first started using them like 2 years ago.

    Is that the rate from your service provider? Mine does not provide a backup solution, so I tried going to R1Soft to see about a license, but couldn't find pricing.

    Ah, so it probably includes storage as well? Our r1soft is self hosted on a dedicated server in a different datacenter at HiVelocity.

    As far as I know you can't purchase it directly from them, and you have to go through one of their approved resellers

    May I ask your host?

    It varies, we don't use shared hosting anywhere but we use a combination of HiVelocity, AWS, Linode, DigitalOcean and Vultr for the most part. You can grab R1Soft from https://cdplicenses.com/, but their prices have increased drastically from the price I've mentioned. New customers they're charging around $14/mo for just the license

    Thanks! I looked at those guys and ended up with HawkHost which I think resells from DigitalOcean (not sure). Including CPanel, it seemed like a good deal for a KVM-based cloud VPS. Guess I'll find out. I've been on LiquidWeb for something like a decade but $65/month takes its toll now. (Before, I ran a very large forum and didn't care about the hosting costs; indeed, I went dedicated.)
