What would be great is if we can backup just the ISPConig files and configurations along with the clients' and reseller account data and site. I'm also researching on an application what will backup and restore a clients' files or folders on the "web" directory by date and time.
Yes, this will be a nice thing for the feature list. ISPConfig has a abckup mechanism for the website contents, but nothing for the complete system.
When you run the installer (setup) script, it makes a backup of the directory /root/ispconfig, home/admispconfig and the SQL database and puts these as tar.gz files in the temp directory. If these contents will be restored to their original locations, you will have a working copy of the prior ISPConfig installation again. But this backup does not include the postfix, bindt, apache etc. config files.
