Backup 1 - Daily backup of all databases
Backup 2 - Daily backup of all site files (no databases)
Backup 3 - Weekly backup of entire site (databases and site files)
I can successfully run all backups using the Backup Now from the back-end. Here's the duration and size of each:
Backup 1 - 2 minutes and 52 seconds (66.78 MB)
Backup 2 - 10 minutes and 8 seconds (1.98 GB)
Backup 3 - 1 hour and 26 minutes (28.22 GB)
Backup 1 runs fine as a CRON job. However, Backup 2 and 3 always fail to complete when run as a CRON job. Any idea why? Is there some setting I need to change to make these job run to completion as a CRON job?
I'm using the following syntax for bot the CRON jobs.
Backup 2 (/usr/local/bin/php -q /home/mysite/public_html/administrator/components/com_akeeba/backup.php --profile 2
Backup 3 (/usr/local/bin/php -q /home/mysite/public_html/administrator/components/com_akeeba/backup.php --profile 3)
