a question about the cronjob. I have two cronjobs and they are inserted in the backend of the hoster. Now I think these jobs with profile1 and profile2 should use the same memory as when this profile is started manually. Is my understanding correct here?
The hoster support says the jobs were started, I don't get any error message, but in my backup folder there are no backup files from these cronjobs.

best regards

Do you see an entry in the Manage Backups page? If not, Akeeba Backup didn't run. In this case I would remove the 1>/dev/null 2>/dev/null from the CRON job to get the error output. Maybe the CRON daemon did trigger the CRON job (that's what your host checked in the logs) but the command line points to a non-existent PHP executable, or you've mistyped the name of the .php file to execute.
