    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.
