It's still happening.. so this has nothing to do with it. I'm sure the whm/cpanel is not getting the successful transfer backup message so after much more searching.. I found that azure closes there connections after 4 mins. They rely on keep alive. With no way to support keepalive on a reseller server - I was able to find a way to change this setting - I used the max of 30 mins.
I will post back if this resolve the problem
I enabled logging on my FTP server to see if that would shed some light.
I noticed in the log that because this backup is much larger than the rest of them.. the next backup starts before this one completes. I had them spaced out 10 mins apart (the one cron job is set to run every 10 mins). Normally they complete within a min or two including ftp upload. But this one takes 13 mins to complete from start to finish. It takes 6 mins to build the backup then another 7mins to transfer and the next one is already running by the time this one starts.
I also noticed that the upload does complete but there is no goodbye message just shows it completed then disconnected. The other backups show a goodbye message. So i'm hoping this is because it has something to do with the next backup already starting from the same server.
Would be nice if you could disable keeping the backup file in the home directory weather it thinks the backup successfully transferred or not. If anyone knows if this could be scripted; let me know as i have no idea. But I can see problems for others if an ftp backup transfer gets interrupted or something happens.. most likely it would be more important to discard the backup then to clog up the home directory.
So for now i've adjusted the backups to run every 30 mins instead of 10. Giving large backup plenty of time to complete. I will report back if adjusting the backup period resolves the issue. I'm hoping that it does.
