Hello all,

My backups don't appear to be working.

They are enabled on WHM, for all accounts. They are all selected to be backed up.

On WHM it displays no backups and when I go to the backup directory there's no backup files.

I looked at the log, and it looks like it last ran in March 2020. This what it said:

Code:
[2020-03-08 02:28:31 +0000] info [backup] no_transport = 0 .. and queueid = TQ:TaskQueue:421

Any ideas?

Cheers

Run the backup manually in debug mode and see if there are any error messages pops up during that:

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup --debug

Hi,

Sorry I didn't get notified of replies. Thought it was very odd I didn't hear anything.

Sorry can someone point me in the direction of how to do a manual backup in debug mode?

Just like I said via SSH as root run this:

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup --debug
