    I enabled monthly backups in whm but the latest backup is from Oct.

    Is it possible to run the script that cpanel uses to backup account? Which script is that?

    I noticed that on half my servers(out of 10) backups were working, but there is not a recent(within over a month) backup in the /backup directory. I have ensured WHM is set to backup.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Our remote backups stopped all together with the last few updates. We have never got weekly/monthly to work over remote connections so we have gone back to second drive backups.

    You can run
    /scripts/cpbackup
    from shell if you want to do it manually.

    Does scripts /backup/cpbackup run on a cron? where can i find it?

    How do it set the conf file for it so it will work even if the load is high:
    # /scripts/cpbackup
    tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    Waiting for load to go down to continue
    tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
    Waiting for load to go down to continue

    I have a dual processor machine and the load is 2.51
    and the top process is
    26222 root 19 19 7732 6388 1624 S N 9.5 0.6 6:50 cpanellogd

    It runs when the cpanel upgrade (scripts/upcp) is run.
    /var/spool/cron/root


    Sounds like you probably have one set to incremental backup.
