You will need to edit the cron file to change the timing for backup. If you have an root access to your server then you can edit the below file:

pico /var/spool/cron/serverusername

0 2 * * * /scripts/cpbackup

The above cron job will execute the cpbackup script at 2 am.

You need to login as root through SSH and edit the root file.

pico /var/spool/cron/root
