To configure system backups to include custom files or directories, create a new file or directory in the /var/cpanel/backups/extras directory (for example, /var/cpanel/backups/extras/etc). In that file, enter an absolute path to any files that you wish to back up (for example, /etc/example.conf).

Note:

The server administrator can edit the /etc/my.cnf file to change the MySQL data directory location. In such a case, WHM will back up the directory at its new location.
