    Hi

    Last night my backups failed with a transport error, but it looks like the backups completed first. I want to try and run the transport routine separately, as it was the last day of the month and I usually keep these for a while. I found a thread here which said I could run
    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/cpbackup_transporter directly, but this reports there is nothing in the queue and exits. However, when I check my remote location, I can clearly see it is missing several accounts.

    How can I force the cpbackup_transporter to go do it's thing and fix my remote copies ?

    I was kinda thinking someone would tell me to do that, but I didn't want to perform a full backup during the day. The backups are all sitting nicely in the /backup folder on the server, just need them going to my remote destination.

    I'm not sure how that script operates exactly but I've never heard of running it by itself.
    Here's another almost identical thread where @cPanelMichael suggests copying the backups manually:
    Running backup transport only
