How to Specify the exact time (hour) to run a backup on cPanel server?Solution :-By default, backup script runs at 1:00AM on the server but you can also set your own custom time to finish backups before peak traffic resumes.There are two ways to change exact time (hour) to run a backup on cPanel server -1) Using command line.
2) Through WHM.1) Using command line -To change backup time of the server, you will need to do SSH. Once done then fire below command on the server :-crontab -l -u root
Above command will show you all cronjobs setup for root user ont the server.
To edit cronjobs for root user, you will need to fire below command -crontab -e -u rootSearch for below two line and set your custom time -
0 1 * * * /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/cpbackup
0 2 * * * /usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup
In above example, cpbackup script will run at 1:00AM and backup script will run at 2:00AM.2) Using WHM -If you are not comfortable with option #1 then you can change time to run backup using graphical interface too.To do so, you will need to login to WHM > Click on Configure cPanel Cron Jobs and change minute, hour, day, month and weekday as per your requirement.
