    The backups on one of my servers are running for a very long time. Where can I see when the backup job starts and how can I change the start time? WHM does not seem to give me that option.

    Thanks.

    Does your WHM have "Configure cPanel Cron Times" under "Add-ons"?

    If not, you can go in shell as root and do
    crontab -e
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Its easier to change that by the cPanel addon. If you dont see that addon in the last section of your WHM, you can install the addon from WHM --> cPanel 10.x.x - Xxx --> Addon Modules ---> Select 'cronconfig' --> Save
