On this new one... version 11.40.

There is any easy command to run backups like this /scripts/cpbackup --force

Not for the legacy, a command to run --force the new backup system.

Yes, you can use:

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup --force
Thank you.

Now it's already cp 11.40, do we still need to enable all accounts to enable new backup, or can we now choose several users that we want to backup?

You can select all users, or choose specific users that you want to backup. This has always been possible with the new backup system.

Note: Please ensure new threads are opened for specific questions or issues related to the backup system. It's better to have separate threads for each individual issue.

Thank you.

I just switched from legacy to this new backups and faced many problems. Backups were not done, neither when I selected this all users for this new backup system. Forced backup did the trick but again, backup is not processing as set by specific days in backup configuration via WHM.
I tried to change cron hours but it seems that cron setting via WHM is not affecting this new backup system.
So my question is how can I controll cron times for this new backup as now it seems my backup is not running at all unless I force it to run?
I have latest stable cPanel/WHM

This thread is intended for information about forcing a backup generation as opposed to being a thread to report problems with the new backup system. I am closing this thread at this time, and I have copied your post to a new thread at:

Thank you.
