    I used to do an occasional rsync transfer, run from my Mac, which connects to my WHM servers, and transfers the daily backup dir as an extra extra extra safe backup!

    All of a sudden it stopped working. Not sure why. This is what I get after a few files have transferred...

    Read from remote host vps.myhost.co.uk: Operation timed out
    rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (3885965 bytes received so far) [receiver]
    rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(600) [receiver=3.0.6]
    rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (2487542 bytes received so far) [generator]
    rsync error: unexplained error (code 255) at io.c(600) [generator=3.0.6]

    I also installed v3.0.6 on my mac just to make sure but still no beans.

    I'm running

    /usr/local/bin/rsync -ave 'ssh -p 999' --timeout=0 user@vps.myhost.co.uk:/localbackups/ /Mystuff

    I'm all out of ideas, and am thinking of upgrading rsync on my WHM machines to 3.0.6... I'm not a linux guru, and I suspect that if I just go and download rsync source files, and compile/install it that I'll end up breaking something, espcially if WHM runs rsync as a daemon or something...

    Any advice/help? Thanks. Steve.

    Rsync

    Hello,

    This is most likely an Operating System Issue, you may need to run an OS update, however this is not something we could support directly. Which OS are you running? Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thank you,
    Matthew Curry

    Blimey Matt, you are a busy chap! and so quick to reply :)

    I am running Centos 5.x

    I'm happy to upgrade it myself, but was just enquiring if there would be any direct impact on a standard VPSOptimized install of WHM/Cpanel as I am unsure if there are any parts of WHM/Cpanel which depend on a particular version/location for rsync.

    Updating rsync

    Santrix,

    Always busy, I would have to say that the update/upgrade to rsync would probably not cause any issues. However, having said that it would not be something that we could support directly; this would be at your own risk. I hope it works for you, please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thank you,
    Matthew Curry

    I had the same issue and upgraded rsync to 3.0.6 on all servers last week. So far so good :)

    ok Matt thanks. yapluka, thanks for that... did you install it over the old rsync, or have you installed it somewhere else, keeping the existing copy in place?
