backups


Question

Hi,

 

I tried the user backup, I ticked everything including mysql option, but the resulting tar.gz does not contain the mysql dump(s):

 

root@h174:~# tar tf /var/customers/webs/dudig/backup/dudig-backup_202010120010.tar.gz  
./mail/
./mail/dudig-mail.tar.gz
./web/
./web/dudig-web.tar.gz
root@h174:~#

A note here, there are few databases on the machine like froxlor ofcourse, wordpress etc., none of the databases was created via the froxlor GUI.

 

Where can I define which databases are to be backed up, and/or select additional locations to the backup job.

 

Another question, will there be an option to store backups offsite?

 

TIA & regards,

 

Dudi

well there you got it, how should froxlor know to which customer the databases belong?

You can use panel_databases to define which database belongs to which customer.

Well there is more than enough open source software for that ... froxlors "backup" feature is more a possibility for the customer to obtain all the files related to his account

That's correct.

 

The point is that in my case all the "customers" have no system knowledge , they only know how to upload/download files to/from the server, and they know how to add email and ftp users.

 

For everything else - they shout to the admin, I.E. me...

 

So having a global backup for the admin sounds like a good idea.

 

I'll manage.

Then please setup backuppc or similar so you as admin can satisfy the needs of your customers having regular backups whatsoever.

Froxlor is not a backup tool. There are many many solutions and possibilities.

What more but click and then download from the given directory do they have to do to get their backup/data dump
