In this tutorial, I will be showing you how you can force a cPanel backup via ssh. There are two different backup systems on new installations of cPanel. The Legacy backup and the new one. In the Legacy Backup System, you will need to use 

/scripts/cpbackup --force

In the new backup system, you will need to use 

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup --force

List what you read?
