    I am unable to backup my mysql database using the Backups feature in cPanel anymore. Only 20 bytes are downloaded and if I try to export in phpmyadmin I get an error message of:
    Firefox can't find the file at https ... :2083/cpsess4831071423/3rdparty/phpMyAdmin/export.php

    I have two tables that have 388,828 rows each. I can't export these individually either.

    Any tips?

    Hello :)

    Do you have root access to this server? If so, please check the cPanel error log while attempting to download the database backup. The cPanel error log is located at:

    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log
    There should be output that will help identify the specific reason the database backup is empty.

    Thank you.

    Evidently this is a KNOWN bug in cPanel that was adressed in the [11.38.1.3 ] release. However, the current STABLE release for cPanel is [11.38.0]

    cPanel - push out a stable release with your fix.

    Thank you.

    Any idea is when it will be pushed, as many of our customers are using this critical feature on a daily basis.

    Cheers

    cPanel 11.38.1 was pushed to the RELEASE tier today. You can always see which version is in each tier by browsing this page:

    Downloads - cPanel Inc.

    Right now there is no timeframe for when 11.38.1 will be pushed to STABLE, but it is the only remaining tier that is still 11.38.0.
