SSH cPanel Clone

This destination is for clone jobs only.
You must have root access to this destination (cPanel server).

An example configuration page for the destination:

create SSH clone destination

Destination Name

A generic name for your internal ease of use, so it will be easier to recognize the clone destination roll, in case you have more than one. Max length is 40 characters.

Remote Host

A simple hostname or IP address to access the remote cPanel server.


Your remote port. Default port is 22.

Remote Password

Password for the root user.
JetBackup will create all necessary keys for remote login on the remote server.

Private key

The path to the private key.
The password is stronger, so if there is a password, the key will not be in use.
Since we are using rsync for clones, we will need to set up access keys between the servers, so we can log in to the remote server without prompting for a password.
If empty, it will be automatically created by JetBackup.
To find a guide for that, search for ssh without password.

Connection Timeout

Timeout for the connection. The default value is 30 (The Connection Time Out in seconds), you can increase this if the connection to the remote server is poor and you might face longer timeout issues.

Rsync Bandwidth Limit

Limit rsync bandwidth.

Rsync Prefer IPv4/IPv6

Choose your preferred IP version.
