    I set up my backup config in WHM, ssh'd into the server and ran /scripts/cpbackup

    The script created the cpbackup folder with a weekly and a monthly folder inside that.

    I only tested it on one account to make sure it worked - which it did.

    So then I started adding new accounts to my list to be backup and then ran /scripts/cpbackup again.

    But, instead of creating backups for those other accounts, all I get is "Daily Backup is up to date"

    So, I tried deleting the cpbackup folder and running the script again. This time, it isn't even creating the cpbackup folder but it ist still telling me that the backup is up to date.

    Also, how can i know what time the backup is supposed to run? I can choose what days in WHM, but not the times.

    Thanks for your help.

    This should push it along.

    /scripts/cpbackup --force

    In WHM, under the cPanel section find the "Plugins" link. in there find cronconfig near bottom and install it. It adds a new item to the plugins section that you can set backup times I believe.
