    Ok, firstly...

    I have been having problems with cron's running at awkward times.

    Like backup is awkwardly run at 11 AM.. (I cant find the cron that runs it.. ) I thought
    maybe upcp runs it.. heres the upcp line..

    12 4 * * * /scripts/upcp

    12 minute of the 4th hour .. 4:12 AM correct?

    any help would be greatly apreciated.

    next..

    I would love to see mod_dosevassive added as a apache addon in cpanel..

    as well where can I find the port listings for cpanel, there was a listing of ports that are used and such for helping to setup APF ...

    next.. the /scripts/ directory.. has anyone updated the list of what the scripts do yet?

    I think thats all

    Sheldon

    As far as i know, backups are run as soon as upcp finishes up doing its updates ( if required ). You may want to move UPCP to an earlier time, perhaps 11 PM.

    And for feature requests, follow this URL and click on the appropriate link: http://support.cpanel.net

    Go on, have a guess
    Which is a moot point, because the backups are run at the end of upcp. However, they won't run if the server load is too high, so what you're probably seeing is the script waiting until your server load has gone down to start them. Haze's advice is correct, you should move the time upcp runs back to an earlier time so that it doesn't clash with /etc/cron.daily which normally runs at 04:00 and is probably the cause of the problem.
