    Hi guys,

    I don't want to use the cPanel backup script anymore because it backs up during business hours, uses 100% CPU when every one is using the server.

    I'd like to use a shell script that backs up all accounts, and then I'll run the file everyday at 4:00am using cron.

    Do you have something ready to use?
    Thanks ;)

    It's started by cron.daily / weekly / monthly, what time have you got those set to run at?

    I think we're both saying we are using the default built-in cpanel back-up scripts. I certainly do. Scotty_B is suggesting your cron.daily (and maybe weekly and monthly) is running at the wrong time.
