    What's the difference between /scripts/cpbackup and /scripts/cpbackup2 ?

    If I initiate a backup manually, which should I use?

    Thanks for any advice!

    PS - Yeah I searched, and will continue to search for this already answered :)

    I just looked and I don't have a /scripts/cpbackup2
    So I just ran /scripts/cpbackup to force a backup now.

    What version of cPanel are you running?

    Doing a quick diff of the scripts, it looks like cpbackup2 has additional support for individual users and passive ftp backups.

    I'm running the following: WHM 9.4.0 cPanel 9.4.0-R21 RedHat Enterprise 3 - WHM X v3.1.0

    I have never used ftp or individual accounts functionality, maybe when that is selected in the backup settings CP then creates the second script? :confused:

    I would recommend updating that install to at least 9.4.1-S65 and then updating your php version to 4.3.8 ;)

    The cpbackup2 script is labelled cPanel8 (versus cpanel5 for the cpbackup script), so I imagine you should have it. I do not have any fresh cp installs to compare it with, so I really do not know when the script is created, but I assume it is simply part of a default install/update.

    My php is at 4.3.8, and I thought I had the lastest version of CPanel, eveidently it only alreats to a new version when there is a vuln or a major change maybe.

    Can I update CP through WHM or do I need to run a script, I'm not seeing a link in WHM to do it :)

    Thanks for the info btw!

    And does the S indicate a stable release?
