    I'm not sure what 1) 2) 3) and 4) are doing here. I believe 1) is something with emptying the mail queue. Is this correct?

    Also, how do I change the daily backups to weekly (nightly) backups. The daily /scripts/upcp are currently doing nightly backups.

    Will this change the daily backup to a weekly backup done monday (=1) in the middle of the night? :

    Thanks

    upcp updates cPanel to the latest version.
    fixquotas has to do with quotas/used disk space
    exim is the mailer (sendmail replacement)
    bandmin has to do with bandwidth- updating stats
    The others are needed tasks. You can adjust most things in WHM under Tweak Settings- you shouldnt have to touch that file
