    Hi,

    I have enabled daily backups in WHM.
    When I cd /etc/cron.daily and runs
    crontab -e I see:

    2,58 **** /usr/local/bandmin/bandmin
    0 0 *** /usr/local/bandmin/ipaddrmap
    21 2 *** /scripts upcp
    */5 **** /usr/local/cpanel/bin/dcpumon >/dev/null 2>&1

    I understand that /scripts upcp controls when the backups are run but what time of the day is 21 2 *** /scripts upcp?

    I learned in another thread that 0 3 ***^/scripts upcp would make the backups run at 3am - in the middle of the night. Is that correct?

    Finally, why is it showing >/dev/null 2>&1 - I can see others have pasted their output but it shows &/dev/null 2&&1. Can I correct it without something bad happening?

    Thanks
    John

    I think something messed up when the forums switched over to vBulletin. What you have appears to be correct.
