    Hi im trying setup backup to my external cloud drive and i cant make it work.

    I already tried cuflftpfs and cifs, both mounted via fstab.

    Both metods giving me this errors:
    St úno 6 02:50:42 CET 2019 PHP Warning:  chown(): Permission denied in /usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/classes/cron.d/ on line XXX
    St úno 6 02:50:42 CET 2019 PHP Warning:  chgrp(): Permission denied in /usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/classes/cron.d/ on line XXX
    Im getting same errors on ubuntu 16.04 server(multiserver) and 18.04 server(single server).

    I was tring to play with flags like allow_other,gid,uid ..etc. I'm testing everything as root user and mounting with uid,gid:0
    Bigest progress so far was
    FTP: Created 'webX' folders with sql back-ups, but no zips with data - achieved with help of cron-debug.php and with cron.php after editing last_run, next_run in db
    CIFS: one comlete back-up (web42) - other webX folders wasnt even created - again with help of cron.php and cron-debug.php

    It looks like is something bad with permisions, but this behavior is really wierd....
    Any ideas are welcome. Thanks

    Ok ..... i figured it out ...
    Solution: Never ever try to set something in 3AM :) (Read: dont try to debug weekly back-up in tuesday - they're hardcoded to sunday)

    anyway.. chown permision error is still here even if i got CIFS mounted with uid=0,gid=0 and backup mode "root"..
    maybe caused by this ?:
    $global_config['backups_include_into_web_quota'] == 'y')
    This statement always overwrite root with webX user and use them in chown ....

    If your backup storage source does not support it to change the user of a file, then you should not enable the option to include backups into user quota.
