    Hi,

    Last week I configured my cPanel to backup all user than export that backup to a NAS, when first backup occurs, it fill up all my root partition ( backup path was : /backup ), so I decided to move the backup process to /home/backup where I have a bigger HDD, but the problem is that I receive a lot of error while creating the backup

    * /home/backup/2014-06-21: Unable to open directory: Permission denied at /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/pkgacct line 1733.

    * /home/backup/2014-06-23: Unable to open directory: Permission denied at /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/pkgacct line 1733.

    * /home/backup/weekly: Unable to open directory: Permission denied at /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/pkgacct line 1733.

    * /home/expedi/public_html/commandes/267: Unable to open directory: Permission denied at /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/pkgacct line 1733.

    Someone have an idea how I could fix that ?

    Hello :)

    Check the permission/ownership values on the directory you referenced in the output:

    It's likely owned by the "root" user, and thus it's not backed up.

    Thank you.

    Thank you for your reply Michael,

    Theses folder have the right user permission, they are owned by user and group expedi, maybe it's the permission they have who is to strict d-wxr----t (340) What do you think could be better ?

    For the other part (permission in /home/backup) that look really strange, I have some folder owned by backup, and other by root ?


    [/home/backup]# ls -la

    It looks like you created an actual account with the username "backup" instead of just creating the directory. I suggest using a different directory for backups if you plan to have an actual account with the "backup" username. As for the other issue you referenced, 0755 are the default directory permissions. Are you using 0340 permissions on that directory on purpose to limit access to it?

    Thank you.
