    Hi,

    A quick question, How do I make cpbackup scripts NOT to run on background?

    Everytime I use /scripts/cpbackup it says "backup is running on background". I'd like to see the status of the backup script when it is running so that I know it's completed or incomplete.

    Thanks

    That behavior cannot be changed without modifying the script. You can however tail the log file it creates in /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup which will give you the info you want.

    Tell me more in details how to change the behaviour of the script?

    I prefer it to show full details while I run cpbackup behind 'screen'
