    Hi,

    I'm new to the ISPconfig3, and would like to change the backup schedule of all websites hosted on the panel.
    How can I do it?

    Open the Backup-Tab for evey website or set the backup-interval in the database in the table web_domain with phpmyadin or direct in mysql.

    sorry, I did not explain right!
    I need make only one backup per day, which start promptly at 20:00hs.
    I understand I need to change the time the backup job starts at cron.
    but do not know how.

    You can run cron_daily at 20:00. But this will also create the statistics etc. at 20:00. If you really need Backups at a different time, you can copy cron_daily.php to backu.php and remove the backup-part from cron_daily and leave only the backups in backup.php

    backup.php does not exist yet, you would create it by copying cron_daily.php to backup.php, and then removing the backup code from cron_daily.php.

    Note you would need to add your own cronjob entry to run backup.php at 20:00, and you would also have to change cron_daily.php again if you update ispconfig. It looks like ispconfig 3.1's cron_daily.php is empty, so these instructions won't apply if/when you update to that.

    thanks i will try it.
    maybe it was better to determine time of backup (for admin) in panel also client could take their backups and take the responsibility of their data
