    I have cpanel backup to run daily and I have everyday selected, but I always get this message:

    Daily Backup is up to date



    How can I fix this?


    I even tried running /scripts/cpbackup from shell and got the same thing.

    Thanks

    Check to see if you may have two entries in crontab.

    Also, actually look and see if your files were backed up for that day.
    You will get that message backups were run more than once in
    a 24 hr period.

    you can also use
    /scripts/cpbackup --force

    to force a backup if needed

    Go on, have a guess
    Yup, that's why. You can either wait for the next day or touch the backup daily dir and set the time back, e.g.:

    touch -d "00:00 /backup/cpbackup/daily

    It would have helped to know that ;)

    IIRC, you can simply remove /home/cpbackuptmp:

    rm -Rfv /home/cpbackuptmp
