    Hi,

    I got a backup problem. If I manually in plesk hit backup now it works.

    I schedule a backup and nothing happems just like its not running.

    However in cron, for root I see:
    */15 * * * * /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/backupmng >/dev/null 2>&1

    So its running.

    Any idea whats wrong?

    I am running 8.01 on FC4

    Cheers.

    The cron job may be listed in the crontab but is crond running? check by enter:

    # ps aux | grep crond

    On my box, crond was not started. Once I started it, the backups ran as scheduled.

    What is your backup schedule? Some people say that PBM skips the first day. Can you forward date on your host for a couple of days and wait for half of a hour?

    Support got back to me. Seems there is a bug in the scheduler. So for example say its 09:00AM, you then schedule a job for 19:00

    It WONT run at 19:00 today, but runs at 19:00 tomorrow. Seems when you set a schedule is just assumes today is done even if the time you set has not been reached yet.
