Vesta Backup Cron Job ubuntu 14.04

Hello. I have this problem that has been bothering me for quite some time. I have installed the VestaCP on my ubuntu 14.04 droplet. It has only the default cron jobs. The problem that occurs is that a “backup” directory is created, where all the backups are kept, and this directory eventually takes up the whole disk space of the droplet. I can delete manually afterwards. Any help with that??

below is the list of all the cron jobs:

sudo /usr/local/vesta/bin/v-update-sys-rrd sudo /usr/local/vesta/bin/v-update-user-stats sudo /usr/local/vesta/bin/v-backup-users sudo /usr/local/vesta/bin/v-update-sys-queue backup sudo /usr/local/vesta/bin/v-update-sys-queue webstats sudo /usr/local/vesta/bin/v-update-sys-queue traffic sudo /usr/local/vesta/bin/v-update-sys-queue disk

Thanks in advance

I hope the problem is already resolved.

For people who came here for a solution: you should go to “Packages” section in Vesta panel and create a new package with an amount of backups you need. Then go to “Users” section and edit a user to set the new package.

I am not super familiar with Vesta but a quick search found this which would indicate that you can disable backups completely by deleting the cron job or configure them to back up to a separate FTP server instead.
