    I have setup automated backups for all the accounts on our WHM server using the Backup Configuration module.

    The problem I'm having is that the transfer process to a remote FTP site is mostly failing, or outright failing. When I check my remote FTP site, I either have only a handful of backup accounts, no backup accounts, or a bunch of empty backup accounts.

    I've checked the cPanel backup log and it creates all the account backup packages and puts them in the default backup folder on the WHM server no problems.

    But when checking the transporter log, between 90% to 100% of the accounts fail to transfer to the remote FTP site. I'm getting this error message in the log:

    I have it set to do 1 weekly and 1 monthly with 1 of each retained.

    I've set it to backup to a remote FTP location. I have it going to a specific sub-folder at the FTP site. And I have disabled Passive FTP. Clicking the "Validate" button gives me a green success notice.
