Ok, now ive searched this froum and suprisingly not found an answer to what i assume to be a popular question....

I understand that all backups (daily, weekly & monthly) are ran at 1am every morning.

Daily backups are obviously 1am every morning.

What day of the week are weekly backups made?

What day of the month are the monthly backups made?

Can these be changed? if so, how?

Cheers.

Go on, have a guess
The answer is in the /scripts/cpbackup script ;) The weekly backup is copied from the daily backup 7 days after the previous time it was run. The monthly backup happens 30 days after it was last run, based on the date on the respective directory file.

If you want to influence the date that either runs on you need to use that information to set the date back on the /backup/cpbackup/weekly or /monthly directory file using touch -d.
