    Hello,

    I just set my WHM to backup all accounts and databases in the /backup folder as well as a remote FTP server running on a spare PC of mine. However when I head over to restore there are no backups available. Also if I check my FTP directory there is nothing in it. It connect to the FTP successfully and is set to run every day.
    If I run

    service crond status

    it says it is running

    Hello :)

    Do you see backup archives in the /backup/$date/ directory when checking via SSH? Did you enable both local and remote FTP backups? Check the transporter log to see if the backups were transferred to the remote FTP server. It's located at:

    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup_transporter.log
    Thank you.

    This is what I see when I look into the dated backups, looks like its empty

    Code:
    root@server [/backup]# ls
    ./   2014-08-23/  2014-08-25/  2014-08-27/
    ../  2014-08-24/  2014-08-26/  cpbackup/
    root@server [/backup]# cd 2014-08-26
    root@server [/backup/2014-08-26]# ls
    ./  ../  accounts/  system/
    root@server [/backup/2014-08-26]# cd accounts
    root@server [/backup/2014-08-26/accounts]# ls
    ./  ../
    And I have attached a pastebin of the cpbackup_transporter.log


    - removed -

    Thank you for the quick reply

    Could you attach a screenshot of your backup configuration settings in Web Host Manager?

    Thank you.

    We have the same problem. For some reason I can't see the backups in the remote server but after login several time they appear. I know this do not make sence.
