Allow Database backups larger than 20MB

Nathan Platt shared this idea 3 years ago
Under Consideration

Currently the maximum supported backup for the database from WHMCS over FTP is 20MB. This is way too low and should be at least 1gb. WHMCS state the issue is due to PHP limitations, yet plenty of our customers have max upload sizes well into the 100's mb.

Please fix this

Thanks for your suggestion. We have implemented a cPanel backup option: https://docs.whmcs.com/Backups#cPanel_Backup

By offloading the backup to a background system process, as opposed to having PHP trying to manipulate a potentially large file, it can be much more efficient all round.


Its good to see a partial solution, however we use a VPS with just Centos as our main hosting server is Plesk Onyx and WHMCS isn't particularly friendly towards Plesk. Is there a solution for centos or plesk?
