This article describes how to exclude specific files and directories from cPanel backups. Over time, backup files can become very large, particularly if the backup file contains other backups (for example, WordPress backups). By excluding unnecessary files and directories from backups, you can help prevent filling up the account's disk space.
To exclude specific files and directories from cPanel backups, follow these steps:
*.jpa backup-*.tar.gz cpmove-*.tar.gz site-*.tar.gz */com_akeeba/backup/* */backupbuddy_backups/* public_html/cache/* tmp/* logs/* softaculous_backups/* */wp-content/uploads/wpcf7_captcha/* */wp-content/widget-cache/* */wp-content/cache/* */wptsc-cachedir/* */wp-content/ai1wm-backups
