How do I enable automatic backup?
 
Hi everyone.

That's it. How do I enable and configure automatic backup? I've been searching around and can't find anything.

Thanks, I know about backup tools. But I was talking about the backup that appears in the changelog (2.1.2).

The backup runs automatically and stores a tar.gz backup file in the "backup" directory of each website.

If you dont have a backup directory in the website directories, please check if this line is in your root crontab:

Code:

05 02 * * * /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/backup.php &> /dev/null

hello,

i have this line

Code:

05 02 * * * /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/backup.php &> /dev/null
in the crontab, but no backup-folders.
what can be wrong?

regards,
dumb-medic

What happens if you run this command:
Code:

/root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/backup.php
on the shell (as root)?

dumb-medic 25th April 2006 18:03

simply nothing, bash prompt.
in /var/log/messages no entry :confused:
and again no backup-folders.

till 25th April 2006 22:50

The bash prompt returns without errors? How long does it take until the prompt returns?

dumb-medic 26th April 2006 13:55

hitting enter brings the prompt, same second.
