Place where I want to mount it on my server

mount -t nfs FTP-HOST:/export/ftpbackup/SERVER MOUNT

FTP-HOST: The FTP Hostname in my email
SERVER: The login in the email, which is also the orignial server hostname
MOUNT: The place on my server where I want to mount it

Then I presume I add it to my /etc/fstab if I want it to auto mount.

Is that all right?
That's right. Should look something like this:

ftpback-bhs1-2.ip-123-456-789.net:/export/ftpbackup/ns123456.ip-123-45-67.net /backup
For /etc/fstab, should look like this:

mount -t ftpback-bhs1-2.ip-123-456-789.net:/export/ftpbackup/ns123456.ip-123-45-67.net /backup nfs defaults 0 0

Hi,

I just read the email, it has the FTP login details, which is only accessable from the server.
There nothing about mounting it.

You can mount it using NFS. First enable NFS on the Manager, then check the mount instruction on the activation email you should have already received when activating the backup storage.

I got the game dedi server from OVH and just activated the free 500GB backup space.
The server is running Ubuntu 16.04, is there away to rsync to it or mnt it?
I have the options CIFS, FTP or NFS for the backup.
