Default default backup directory

If a user creates a backup plan without specifying a target directory the backup is stored in /var/www/[username]/data/[username]

Since our backup software is also doing a daily backup (incremental) of the whole server it would be great if we could exclude user backups from being backed up again.

1) Is it possible to change the default backup storage path (e.g. by a configuration switch) to e.g. /var/www/[username]/data/backup/ so that we simply could exclude /var/www/*/data/backup/ from the server backup?

2) Would it be possible to lock the storage directory against being changed by the user?

1,2 - Unfortunately, it's impossible.
You can forbid your users set backup plan, as a solution. Accounts Management---Users---the Access button---'Backup plan management'---the Disable button.
And set your own plan for them.
