    Hi, can we backup our sites and configs to SSH offsite servers, just started looking at it.

    I would be interested to know what types of backup you all use.

    My previous panel has a backup system that is just amazing. Only thing that kept we them to be honest.

    Thanks.

    As you probably have seen, there is no configuration for that in the ui; what you can do is create custom "mount" and "unmount" scripts that are run before and after the backups take place, which gives you a lot of flexibility. Eg. on some servers I use sshfs to mount a remote (psuedo-)filesystem, and additionally layer encfs on top of that, so the remote end cannot read the backup files. A version of that script is posted at https://www.howtoforge.com/community/threads/upgrade-to-ispconfig-3-1-no-backup.74145/#post-351855 and you can find other examples searching the forums here as well.
