    Hello,
    I was wondering if there is a backup cron command. I want to have it so it backs up automatically. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Derek

    There is no "backup" cron command per se. Cron is simply the scheduling mechanism that allows commands or scripts to be run.

    Oh... Well do you know any ways that I could set it up to automatically back up at like a certain time? I have access to WHM also if that helps.

    Backups are done right after the cpanel upgrade runs, so you can change when that is done.

    You can edit that in shell with "crontab -e".
