Cron scheduled backups not running

Hello. I have a scheduled cron backup job from my Webmin NAS to my adjacent Synology NAS. The problem is, it’s not running as scheduled. I can run it manually, and the backup will work fine, but we all know it’s far better to have backups running automatically.

I have the cron job scheduled to run daily at midnight, as you can see in the attached screenshot. But it’s not actually running, and I’m not sure what I need to change.

OS type and version Debian 11
Webmin version 2.105

are you actually saving it? does it get listed?

Yes, it’s saved. I didn’t change anything before opening this screen.

have you tried stopping the Cron Deamon then restarting it?

I just did that…let’s see if it works. Fingers crossed!

That’s not necessary.

didn’t seem to be any other ideas being offered.

though I did wonder if there was an update pending

Thanks, but that did not solve it either.

In that image, it looks like the cron is set to run every minute. Maybe that is the issue.

No, “Simple schedule Daily” is selected.
