Institutions can choose to turn off all installatron backups at the server level. This frees up space on the server. Reclaim Hosting provides daily offsite backups so if you’re ever in a pinch and need a backup, reach out to us and we’ll be happy provide one. This guide will walk you through turning off backups at the server level.

First, log into your server at yoursever.reclaimhosting.com:2087

This will open up a new window where you can manage all Installatron settings. Click ‘Features.’ This brings up an administrator screen where you can modify any server-wide settings. You’ll want to focus on the ‘Backups and Restore’ section. You can disable the option to automatically take backups and restore from them if needed.

Click ‘Disable’ to turn off the option to turn off backups server wide.
