Just moved to a new cpanel/WHM 64 build 24 server and resetup backup via AWS S3 but validation times out even with 300 seconds timeout set

On the AWS S3 bucket i do see a validate.tmp text file timestamped with
Code:
This is a test file created to determine if backups are operable::
awscli and s3cmd work for connecting to the S3 bucket though

cpbackup has yet to run for first time on server though, so would that matter ?

Hi,

Do not wait for it to run. Forcefully execute it and see what is the logs says that will give you clear idea of whether the backup is running..

Hello,

You can run the following command to manually force a backup generation if you want to verify it's working properly:

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup --force
Let us know if you encounter any specific error messages.

Thank you.
