    Hi

    Tonight I have tried using the compressed backups and notice quite a few error messages in the log

    Code:
    Creating Archive ..../bin/gtar: webmaste/mysql-timestamps/horde: file changed as we read it
    /bin/gtar: webmaste/mysql-timestamps/webmaste_stats: file changed as we read it
    /bin/gtar: webmaste/shell: file changed as we read it
    /bin/gtar: webmaste/sds: file changed as we read it
    /bin/gtar: webmaste/quota: file changed as we read it
    /bin/gtar: webmaste/mysql/horde.sql: file changed as we read it
    /bin/gtar: webmaste: file changed as we read it
    
    ERROR: tar of backup archive returned error 256
    [cpbackup] Failed to back up account webmaste
    
    What are these messages and how can I fix them?

    Thanks for any help
    Pete :confused:

    These are all the files cpanel backup seems to have a problem with

    Code:
    /bin/gtar: useracc/meta/dbprefix: file changed as we read it
    /bin/gtar: useracc/mysql-timestamps/mysql: file changed as we read it
    /bin/gtar: useracc/mysql-timestamps/roundcube: file changed as we read it
    /bin/gtar: useracc/mysql-timestamps/useracc_news_1352557400: file changed as we read it
    /bin/gtar: useracc/mysql/horde.sql: file changed as we read it
    /bin/gtar: useracc/mysql/roundcube.sql: file changed as we read it
    /bin/gtar: useracc/mysql/useracc_news_1352557400.sql: file changed as we read it
    /bin/gtar: useracc/nobodyfiles: file changed as we read it
    /bin/gtar: useracc/quota: file changed as we read it
    /bin/gtar: useracc/sds: file changed as we read it
    /bin/gtar: useracc/shell: file changed as we read it
    /bin/gtar: useracc: file changed as we read it
    Creating Archive ..../bin/gtar: useracc/mysql-timestamps/horde: file changed as we read it
    Creating Archive ..../bin/gtar: useracc/mysql-timestamps/useracc_stats: file changed as we read it
    
    I'm starting to wonder if this is a new problem/bug and only happens on servers running off SSD's

    No it seems generally cpanel backups are not reliable.
