Hi,

I have set the backup on WHM to run daily and pointed it to a directory 'localbackup' which I have created. But after a week, there is still no back up done.

I then tried running 'cpbackup' to do it manually, but I get this -> '-bash: cpbackup: command not found'

can anyone advise where went wrong??

Hello :)

Please let us know which version of cPanel is installed on your system:

Code:
# cat /usr/local/cpanel/version
If it's 11.36 or earlier, ensure you have enabled the following option in "WHM Home » Backup » Backup Configuration":

"Backup Accounts"

You can force a backup generation in 11.36 and earlier via:

Code:
# /scripts/cpbackup --force
If you still get no backup archives, please review the backup logs in /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup and let us know if you notice any error messages.

Thank you.
