Default Using backuppc for ISPConfig

Hi all,

I have implemented backuppc to backup our ispconfig installtions. I havent used backuppc before so would like to know the following:

Is it possible to restore a single database using backuppc? I assume the backup of the mysql files will be sufficient for this. if not I will have to implement a backup script to dump the databases daily.

thanks

The backup of the files is sufficient. But I dont know if you might get corrupted tables if a adatabse is accessed while you backup the file. Maybe a custom script that uses the mysqldump command might be more secure as database backup.
