    Hello, I am using the GO DADDY virtual dedicated server and also purchased the FTP backup for the server. I have set the configurations and tested the login to the ftp via root ssh and I was able to reach the ftp space from the virtual server... however after setting up the backup service and selecting the user names, I have not seen any backups completed.

    Can someone please provide me with the reason why it would not be working, or how to check. I am a bit rusty with linux, but if you give me a run through or how to start the backup I would like that very much.

    Thank you for your time and assistance!!

    No logs are generated when the WHM backup process runs, which is a shame.

    The best way to look for errors is to run though the backup process by hand and see what errors might pop up in the output.

    Just run /scripts/cpbackup from root shell and see what happens.

    update on backup

    I just got back from vacation, I was able try that command and the message I get after it trys to do some stuff is: Waiting for load to go down to continue and it stays there. I kept it there and it would not change for 4 hours.. so there is some sort of load issue I think.

    That seems to be the case.

    What is the average load? Is it particularly high?
