    I'm programmed to do backups through WHM to my second hard drive (/backup) daily.

    I'd also like to do a weekly backup to a separate file server on ncftp.

    I've tested both routines in /scripts/cpbackup and they work fine independently, but I'd like to do BOTH automatically.

    Ideas?

    The best and most secure method for what you outline would be to set up a weekly cron job and use 'scp' to copy all of the files from your backup drive to the offsite server.
