How to increase number of backups, maximum data for backups

I have a world that has grown rather large over the years and its gotten to the point where mcmyadmin only allows one backup, because one backup exceeds the 4096MB limit. This is kind of absurd since there's so much room on the server, it could easily fit more backups but McMyAdmin won't allow more than one, and it has to delete that one to make a new one, so if there was some problem not addressed in a 24 hour period, we'd be completely fucked. I try to make backups myself when I can, but this arbitrary limit is a huge nuisance. How do I get it so that mcmyadmin will allow at least 2, maybe even like the SEVEN it's supposed to allow?

See MaxBackups in McMyAdmin.conf

Okay. How do I do that?

Just edit the file in a text editor of your choice. It's in the directory where McMyAdmin is installed.
