Over the past few years cPanel has been transitioning all API 1 and 2 calls over to their newer UAPI with the intention of removing API 1 functionality by cPanel & WHM version 88 (anticipated in the second quarter of 2020).
What does that mean for us?
Due to cPanel only slowly migrating functionality across the WHM Backup Solutions script currently uses the API 1 to create full account backups. Luckily for us, they have now replicated that functionality in their new “UAPI” as of cPanel & WHM version 78+.
At the time of writing cPanel & WHM version 78 is in CURRENT. This means the majority of servers will not be running version 78…. YET.
What are you doing to prepare?
Development has slowed slightly over the past few months due to personal and work commitments, however I can say that I am well underway researching and implementing the new functionality into the WHM Backup Solutions Script to ensure that the script will work with all possible versions.
I am already under development on Version 0.9 and aim to have it ready for release in the next couple of months.
You can keep track of the Version 0.9 development using out GIT repository.
