Hi... Recently upgraded my vps (this is the only think I can think of), but that means it now has more RAM, more CPU capacity, and more disk space, so I doubt that has anything to do with the new problem.
I am trying to rsync my WHM user account backup directory to a machine in the office.. It's alway run fine in the past (it's something I do every couple of months as an extra extra backup!)
On my mac, I usually run
rsync -avze 'ssh -p 999' email@example.com
My Mac runs 2.6.9 so I installed the latest release just to be sure 3.0.6 and put it in usr/local/bin
/usr/local/bin/rsync -avze 'ssh -p 999' firstname.lastname@example.org
Each time i try this it gets a few dozen files into the transfer and just dies, and eventually times out with the following...
I watch the server with "top" while I open the connection, and I see rsync fire up and consume reasonable resources, but once it hangs, it just drops to idle.
My WHM server is pretty stock, and is running version 2.6.8
Is it safe to upgrade rsync on the WHM server, or will this cause probs with other scripts that WHM runs?
