    Unhappy Problems with cpanel backups

    Hi Ladies & Gents,

    I am having a problems with my daily cpanel backups. The weekly and Monthly show to me up to date but the daily is about 3 or 4 days behind. I have looking at the config in WHM and everything seems to be fine. So you know I am backup up accounts to another server. I am clueless right now. Any ideas on what to check or what could be the problem?

    Thanks.............

    Well currently my date & time is: Wed Aug 30 12:36:03 EDT 2006

    This is what's in crontab on the other server: 0 4 * * * /scripts/cpbackup

    It was set to 1 but I changed it to have them kick off at 4am.

    All accounts are dated 3 -4 days old? and it always ahppen like that? Like, when you run the script today backups are dated say, 26th and tomorrow after the script is ran, they are dated 27th?
    And are they getting changed after running the backup?

    You are probably running in nongzip rsync mode in which case the folder timestamps may be dated if there hasn't been any activity in x days warranting the folder to be "touched"
