    What does that mean exactly and is it a bad thing?

    I see its making backup tars of what is in the home directory in a backup directory, but after that I am a bit confused as to why it says:


    cPanel System Backup is not enabled on this machine. Some other type of backup system may be in place, however downloads cannot be fetched using this module.

    From the x Themes.

    Help?
    :D

    This was fixed in the last "Stable" release, "WHM 7.4.2 cPanel 7.4.2-S117. I am also assuming that you have a 2nd hard drive in your box for Cpanel backups!?!

    Then I do not understand. You may want to try deleting "/etc/cpbackup.conf" and then reconfiguring and saving the Backup via WHM. Your cpbackup.conf should look something like this (depending how you configure it) when done:

    BACKUPACCTS yes
    BACKUPDAYS 0,1,2,3,4,5,6
    BACKUPDIR /backup
    BACKUPENABLE yes
    BACKUPFILES yes
    BACKUPFTPHOST
    BACKUPFTPPASS
    BACKUPFTPUSER
    BACKUPINC no
    BACKUPINT daily
    BACKUPLOGS no
    BACKUPMOUNT yes
    BACKUPTYPE normal
    DIEIFNOTMOUNTED yes
    MYSQLBACKUP both
    BACKUPCHECK yes
    BACKUP2 yes

    Maybe someone else has a better suggestion :confused:
