Database Limits
As a Database grows and increases in size, it becomes too big for cronjobs of PHP scripts to handle backup as the amount of data within it causes various server limitations to exceed, usually around the 18 MB mark. Unfortunately, being big simply means that for a PHP script to loop through and save that data into temporary memory in order to generate a full backup is not possible - either the memory limit or max execution time limit on the server side of things will get underway before the backup completes and will terminate the script. Therefore, the only option at that stage is to consider using an alternative backup means such as WHM automated backups or phpMyAdmin exports.

Logs Settings

You can specify settings for various Logs from this page. If you want to keep track of the various logs, then you just need to Check the respective checkbox and enter the Number of Days for which you want to keep the particular logs.
