Noone knows the answer to this question???

Could anyone please tell me what this error means in /scripts/upcp

ERROR: destination must be a directory when copying more than 1 file
rsync error: errors selecting input/output files, dirs (code 3) at main.c(308)
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (8 bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(165)
link_stat /home/backup/cpbackup/weekly/. : Not a directory
rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at main.c(620)

How do I fix it? Please anyone?

You probably need to give more details about your situation.

Typically there won't be a /scripts directory on a linux system.

Is this an error you are getting from your own script?
What is the exact command that was run that produced the error?

Hmm, I have a cron job that runs /scripts/upcp and it emails me this with this information. It's a long list that displays that cpanel is up to date, backups created, however near the end it displays this message.

In the future you may find you can get a better response by using a specific, descriptive title for your thread. "Noone knows the answer to this question" could apply to anything under the sun, and therefore is likely to be ignored by people who prefer to spend their time attempting to help people on specific, known topics. -- J.W.
