    For 2 years, up until 4/15/2005, my server backups took about 3-5 hours every night. Starting on 4/15/2005, they now take 12 to 16 hours. There has been no significant changes to the server at all. Only a couple of regular accounts added. Even the small sites just churn on and on, meanwhile CPU is at 8-10% (4cpus). I can handle the load, but can anyone think of why this might be happening? Is anyone else experiencing it?

    Go on, have a guess
    Whenever I've seen that it's because of cron job clashes, make sure that:

    1. /scripts/cpbackup runs well before 04:00 when the daily cron runs

    2. /scripts/upcp doesn't run when cpbackup or daily runs
