Hi all. While doing backups over time I have tried to analyse the space usage of these backups. What made me dig deeper is the fact that incrementals were constantly backing up rather old files... like
looking at the stat output for this file:
Access: 2008-03-25 20:33:11.000000000 +0100
Modify: 2007-01-01 00:30:04.000000000 +0100
Change: 2008-03-26 00:30:06.000000000 +0100
The last access timestamp is the actual backup process (tar), but the change timestamp is a riddle to me... must be this ispconfig cron job:
30 00 * * * /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/logs.php &> /dev/null
Does the log cron job do something to the "old" files, and every time it runs?
If yes, can that behaviour be changed?
If no, what else could it be?
