Default web backup excludes many files

Today I have tried to restore a web backup. when I see that the backup was not properly restored.

I checked the backup zip file for the vhost and find that all files with extension other than php are not backed up.

for example .html, .txt, .swf and .htacess without any extension.

is there any special reason for not including these files in backup.

I think it is my mistake. The case in which the backup has not included certain files has some permission issue and it has nothing to do with file extension, which needs to be sorted out from my end.

ISPConfig has two backup modes which can be configured under system > server config.

The .zip mode backs up all files owned by the user of the website. File endings does not matter.

The tar.gz mode backs up all files of the web.

The zip mode is safer as it does not run with root priveliges during backup, so it can not accidently contain sensitive files owned by the root user.
