Protecting your WHMCS database is an important role of the WHMCS Firewall module.

The WHMCS Firewall module helps to protect your WHMCS database by allowing manual or scheduled secure offsite database backups.

The two secure offsite backup locations are Amazon S3 and Dropox.

*We do not recommend using the default “Backup to Email” or “Backup to FTP” options included in WHMCS.

Amazon S3 with a custom user/data store rule set is our #1 recommended secure location. We have a full document detailing how to set that up and can also assist customers that open a support ticket.

We also have a Secure offsite backup to Dropbox feature, which works well and is very easy to setup.

Follow these steps to configure Secure offsite database backups in WHMCS Firewall.

Login to your WHMCS > hover over the menu tab ADDONS > click on FIREWALL MANAGEMENT > click the DATABASE SECURITY menu tab > select BACKUP TO AMAZON or BACKUP TO DROPBOX
