Skipping Files and Accounts

You may wish to skip files or certain accounts. To sip files, create a cpbackup-exclude.conf file in the account root and simply list (you can use regular expressions) the files that you don’t want to back up. If you want to globally skip certain files, you can edit /etc/cpbackup-exclude.conf (which already contains a list of skipped files) to be excluded from all cPanel backups created. To exclude users from backups, create /etc/cpbackup-userskip.conf and list the users you don’t want to back up.
