I've started getting notifications about the backup encountering a number of errors (1 to 10, depending on the server). The backup log ends with "info [backup] Final state is Backup::PartialFailure (0)".

How can I find the errors in the log? If I search for "error" I get a ton of results, because almost every account has this:

/bin/gtar: --: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
/bin/gtar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

If I search for "fail" I find some mysql related errors, but I don't find the total number of errors that is reported.

Hello,

The best way to address the issue is to go through the entire backup log and address each error message one at a time. Could you post some examples of the type of error messages you are seeing?

Thank you.

Hi Michael,

The thing is, cPanel "knows" how many errors there are. How does it count them? If I knew, I could search for the string or whatever it is.

The word "error" appears more than 1000 times, because every account shows at least this error:

Code:
/bin/gtar: --: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
/bin/gtar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
That error doesn't cause the backup to "fail", because I have one server which ends the backups with "success" and it has this in the log as well.

There are several reasons you may see error messages such as "/bin/gtar: Error exit delayed from previous errors", including the existence of files/directories at the start of the backup process that no longer exist when it's time to package the file. Feel free to open a support ticket so we can take a closer look at your backup logs and determine any specific causes for the error messages.

Thank you.
