Good idea. So was the fstab.php suggested by moncojhr.

The smaller accounts don't have the advanced tab (where cron lives), but
I'm guessing they all run same way as they all exhibit the same double
space phenomena...
Note: none of these accounts pay for the extra backup service the
hosting company sells (I find ftp more reliable).

cron job "cat /etc/fstab > ~/fstab_output" gives:-

/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults,usrquota 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0
/var/tmptmp /tmp ext2 loop,noexec,nosuid,rw 0 0
//data1.companynamewashere/servername /backups cifs
uid=root,credentials=/dumbplace/toputplaintextpwdwotswrongwithmd5 cifspw
0 0

Note: I've slightly formatted and somewhat edited the output. As
previously stated, hosting is outside my knowledge area... though samba
for backups (with apologies to the Samba crew) if just um, different -
my only experience with commercial backups was where https used (very
fast, simple, and stable).
