    how to stop cPanel backup during the process?


    If I found the server going to crash any time because of the cPanel backup using excessive resources, what do I type in SSH to stop the whole process of backup?

    the process should be something like "cpbackup" or whatever. kill it and all its children.

    Old thread but I think I tried everything suggested by everyone here and on other forums and nothing worked. I can't stop hundreds of domains' backup by killing the processes one by one. This could take whole day.

    So I simply:

    1) Logged in to WHM panel and edited WHM backup configuration and selected 'disabled' and save.

    2) Restarted server.

    3) After reboot backup processes were gone and backup stopped. Easy way, isn't it
