    I am on WHM 11.44.0 (build 16). Using a 1GB Linode VPS.

    I have the backup configuration enabled and configured using fairly standard options. I have a remote destination set and it validates perfectly fine.

    However, backups are failing with the following in the cpbackup log.

    Code:
    root@kappa [~]# tail /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup/1403268919.log
    /bin/gtar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    /bin/gtar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    /bin/gtar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    /bin/gtar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    /bin/gtar: Removing leading `/' from hard link targets
    /bin/gtar: /var/cpanel/dnsadmin/sock: socket ignored
    /bin/gtar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    /bin/gtar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    /bin/gtar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    [backup] System backups will not be uploaded to any remote destinations
    Google hasn't really revealed what the issue might be. Any thoughts?

    Hello :)

    That does not show a failure. The following message is standard:

    You have to manually enable backups of your system configuration files for remote destinations as documented here:

    System Backups

    Beyond that, make sure "Backup Accounts" is enabled in your backup configuration, and that you have selected the users to backup.

    Thank you.

    Wow. I feel very stupid right now. Just moved to a new server and thought everything was configured correctly. You're right, I forgot to go select accounts!

    Thanks a bunch!
