    Hello,

    my cpbackup runs at about 1am EST. I'd like to move this to a later time (5 am est) as that is the most "slow" time for my site.

    I can't seem to find an option to change this anywhere.

    Anyone know if this is possible?

    Thanks

    Quick answer, edit the cron job directly.

    when on shell as root, type :

    crontab -e

    and then edit the timing for "/scripts/cpbackup".

    ctr+x or whatever to save and close.
