    Hi there,

    Does anyone know if its possible to schedule the WHM weekly backups to a different day of the week (i.e. a Sunday) and the monthly backups to be, the first day (i.e. Saturday, Sunday) of the month?

    I don't see the option in the WHM->Configure backup section, and the cron just calls /scripts/cpbackup on a daily basis, which I think is what handles all backup frequencies.

    Thanks!

    - Alex

    At the present time I'm not aware of a method to accomplish the task without applying customizations outside of WHM.

    Regarding built-in (stock-default) features and functionality, I believe the following two feature requests may be of interest:
    Align weekly and monthly backups to specific day of week and specific day of month - cPanel Forums
    Easier Scheduling of Backups - cPanel Forums
