Just moved my VPS from cpanel host to Spanel host.

I added my email to the cron job and it does email me when it runs, text says: "This account is currently not available.:  , but it is not triggering Akeebabackup.

I can manually run the cron and do a backup through the site. Both work this way and uploads to remote server. The backups are displayed in the Mange Backups.


/usr/bin/php81 /home/XXXX/public_html/cli/joomla.php akeeba:backup:take


Odd, I have 1 -  J3 site that seems to be working using: /usr/bin/php81 /home/XXXX/public_html/cli/akeeba-backup.php 


I have no idea how to test or look for issues.

 Any ideas?
