I'm getting an error on cPanel backups:

/home/xxxxxxxx/.HttpRequest: Unable to open directory: Permission denied at /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/pkgacct line 1799.

The directory is owned by root:wheel and has 700 permissions. It looks like it contains a SSL private key, which explains the permissions.

Any suggestions on the best way to resolve this?

There should not be any SSL keys in that directory. In our servers I see a file named httpupdate.cpanel.net in those directories.

Owner and group of that directory should be that account's username, permissions 700.

Hello :)

Make sure user and group ownership of that directory is set to the account username.

Thank you.
