    I have a problem with my shedulded backup to ftp. The backups work between 5-8 days after then no shedulded backup will work. When i reboot the server then the shedulded backup run between 5-8 days and i always musst restart the server. Where can i see the log files from backups? Have anyone the same problem? sorry my english is not so good :)

    sorry, but all logs may have relevance here.
    Sheduled remote backups or local? What do the psa logs show. 70 %of the actions are logged in a linux server. That is much in comparison to a windows but may be too little for linux.
    So no logs ...

    Scheduled backups are run by `backupmng` utility that is called every 15 minutes and checks if it is time to create some backup, you can see it in root cron tasks:

    # crontab -l -u root | grep backup
    */15 * * * * /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/backupmng >/dev/null 2>&1

    Make sure that crond service is running and try to restart it first:

    # /etc/init.d/crond restart

    Hello if crond service would not run then i dont understand why all other crons run, for example the daily statistics allways run, so i think thats not the problem...sorry for my english :)
