Setting up FTP & SSH Storage for use with JetBackup – JetBackup SSH Storage

JetBackup is a popular backup application used with cPanel/WHM for backing up cPanel accounts. Our FTP & SSH storage is fully compatible with JetBackup as a storage destination.

If you don’t have an account yet, you can find them here: FTP Storage & SSH Storage

Note: In order to use JetBackup, you must have root level access to your server. If you have a Managed VPS with VeeroTech and would like to use JetBackup, please contact our sales dept.

If you’re familiar with setting up JetBackup already, below are the quick settings to enter:

  • Remote Host: hostname we provided (
  • Port: 2246 (note that we use port 2246 on storage servers)
  • Remote Username: username provided
  • Remote Password: password provided (or that you changed, which we recommend)

After you’ve gotten your storage account, you’ll need to add a new destination within the JetBackup Destination settings. First, you’ll click “+Create New Destination” as shown below.
