    Hey everyone!
    On my friend's website she seems to have the same problem.. no backups since February. The log file for daily backup says:

    [cpbackup] backup point /backup/cpbackup/daily is 0.99 days old
    [cpbackup] backup point /backup/cpbackup/weekly is 1.99 days old

    But I can't seem to find a backup/cpbackup folder. Sorry for the dumb question, but where on cpanel do i run a script to force a backup??

    PS : I created a backup/cpbackup/daily folder.. but still not sure how to run a script to force a backup...

    Hi.. As per the logs it is /backup. You need to use the correct path. You can cross check the path in WHM at Backup >> Configure Backup. Find for Backup Destination and you will be able to see the exact path set on server.

    You can even execute the backups forcefully from command prompt using command

    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
