    I tried the new S3 backup option using the script from command line, and I see that it uploads to S3 asynchronously. The question is - shall I get a notification if upload fails for some reason?

    Hello :)

    Yes, backups that fail to complete successfully do trigger a notification to the root contact address configured on the server. Have you encountered a situation where a failed backup did not result in an email notification?

    Thank you.

    No, I didn't, and I don't want to. I just want to be sure about the backups.

    Backup logs are stored in:

    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup

    In addition, the transport log is located at:

    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup_transporter.log

    Thank you.

    I'm getting "Unable to send" emails as well. They aren't helpful, but at least I know it doesn't work.

    I'd rather have it just work.

    A ticket would allow us to take a closer look at your system in order to determine why it's not working properly. There is no cost, and response times are likely to exceed what we can offer on the forums.

    Thank you.
