For example instead of backing up /var try to backup the following:
Today I was in need of restoring 1 particular website. Unfortunately because back-res can't handle that I had to restore /var to a temp dir (which takes long time).
While waiting on the backup to extract I scripted the modifications needed to:
- Removed /var from DIRECTORIES
- Added code to add all subdirectories of /var excluding /var/www and /var/vmail
- Added code to add /var/www excluding subdirectories of /var/www/clients, all subdirectories of /var/www/clients and all subdirectories of /var/vmail
Script is ready and I am testing now. Would go0ogl3 be interested in a proper diff against 0.9.4?
