    I notice strange thing. If I change backup schedule in WHM Configure backup that does not change time schedule in root cron list? Im confused now. Where can I change hour and days when backup should run? If I change time and days in root cron job list that does not afect WHM schedule. Could someone please help me and explain what is going on and which schedule is the right one and by which schedule backups run now. In the past this was the same thing but as it looks to me now that is not the same thing anymore. I need to change hour and days not just days that is why I need to edit schedule in root cron job list and not through WHM Configure backup option.

    Regards

    If you go here:
    WHM » cPanel » Manage Plugins

    Find plugin named:
    cronconfig

    Click Install and keep updated, scroll down and save, refresh the entire page of WHM and then look in Plugins section, left menu in WHM you'll find a new item called Configure cPanel Cron Times where you can change this easy enough.

    Where is this found now "cronconfig" the below is no longer the case.

    If you go here:
    WHM » cPanel » Manage Plugins

    Find plugin named:
    cronconfig

    That area has been cleaned up since that post by me over a year ago.

    In WHM, top left corner search box, type in cron. Or, go here:
    WHM » Server Configuration » Configure cPanel Cron Jobs
