Backup cronjob is not working properly


I have created a new user, and added the backup cronjobs to it
sudo /usr/local/hestia/bin/v-update-sys-queue backup
sudo /usr/local/hestia/bin/v-backup-users

I have them set to every two hours, but they start every 24 hours.
What is the problem? Why don’t they start every two hours?

sudo command can only run under the “admin” user not under a user with the admin role

Adding the new user to sudoers group might work but it may not be a good security practice.

If you allow sudo for that user and only for that command and the file is only writable by root, I see no problem :wink:

We are trying to actively removing this feature from Hestia in the next release.

Any Hestia users should never have any sudo permission for security reasons!


How do you schedule your backups?
From within the admin user?

Yes …
