    Hello,

    We've just installed new FreeBSD 6.1 i386 server running latest stable cPanel 10.9.0-S58

    We set backup for Incremental and to backup all accounts.

    We set the frequency ON to Weekly and Daily.

    The Daily backup works fine, however, it has been 10 days now since we started the daily backup and there is still no weekly backup being done, and no /backup/cpbackup/weekly folder exist either.

    We also noticed this problem on another cPanel machine running FreeBSD 6.1

    Any idea of what is going on ?

    Thx,

    Tamouh

    Been that way for months and looks like cpanel is lacking again on fixing freebsd stuff. Backups and the old addon scripts configs where much better. They still apparently cannot fix this one for some reason.

    No updates on these error messages, or the backup issues...hmm :rolleyes:

    Temp Solution

    Temporary solution would be to run a cron every week for:

    /usr/local/bin/rsync -rlptD --delete /path_to_backup/cpbackup/daily/ /path_to_backup/cpbackup/weekly

    Thanks for the pointer. The actual fix is to :

    ln -s /usr/local/bin/rsync /usr/bin/rsync

    The problem is on FreeBSD rsync installed inside /usr/local/bin instead of /usr/bin/

    btw, this is the same problem with some mySQL functions, do ln -s /usr/local/bin/mysql /usr/bin/mysql

    Happy New Year!
