    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

    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
