    Hello,

    I need your help here. I have a dedicated server with two drives. I want to configure backup into the second disk. I followed the steps in WHM to configure backup but at every point of running back, a message is received saying (Backup not completed on server.xyz.com).

    In the screenshot shown below, I want to backup to "/dev/sdb1 /backup".

    Thank you.

    Hello :)

    You can find the cPanel backup logs within the following directory:

    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup
    Check the most recent backup log and look for any specific error messages that may be causing the backup generation to fail.

    Thank you.

    I checked the log and found this: what should I do?

    I have a second disk (/dev/sdb1 /mnt/disk1) where I will like to backup to. Thanks.

    How do I mount /backup to backup to the second disk (/dev/sdb1 /mnt/disk1).

    I moved my server after the first complaint and got this error today which confirm your statement about if /backup is properly mounted.

    "The backup was not able to be completed because /backup could not be mounted."
