Exclamation Understanding Backup / Restore Manager

Hello Till,

I would like to understand how the backup and restore manager works.

I need this as was with other modules not yet supported in API I manipulated them by directly adding respective "sys_datalog" contents.

While I wanted to do the same with backup restore and download, I realized NO "sys_datalog" content is generated when any of the above tasks is executed. (This actually surprised me).

Qn is: How do you initiate or what do you do in the database to initiate a backup restoration and or download.

Thanks Joseph

Hi Abdi,

we provide free support in the devloper forum here to developers that actively contribute to ISPConfig or release their code as OpenSource. Support for developers that develop closed source products that use ispconfig or do not contribute to ispconfig actively is available as part of our paid enterprise support services. If I check your post history, we have helped you already alot but you neither contributed to ispconfig nor can I find were your software can be downloaded under a open source license.

If you are a open source developer, then please provide the link to the repository or download were the software is available that you are working on. If you develop this software as closed source software and need to get help with its development, then please contact us for paid support trough our ticket system: http://support.projektfarm.com

Best Regards

Till

Till, I would like also to contribute if you have noticed I have also reported a number of bugs on tracker and discovered a few un-documented functions..

I would like to help in:

1. Documentation (Especially API documentations)
2. API Extension
and anyother ..

However, how do I do this, and just to avoid doing something some has already done or is doing (how do I get this information)

Joseph

It will be great if you could contribute in these areas, especially adding some missing api functions and improving the documentation.

For the api functions, please make a short list of th functions you like to add so I can coordinate that nobody else is working on them. You can contrbute the changes either by sending me a svn diff or by contacting me for a svn login.

I would like to work on:

1. Backup / Restore (+ documenation)

That should open up my understanding of the ISPConfig3 code then I can proceed with more complex stuff like APS installer ..

BUT: I would need a lot of help first understanding the code structure and where to find what function ...Once am set with this, the rest will be walk-over

Till,

Could you please give me a quick guide or a doc where I can find a guide on writing my first basic API command. (Which files to touch and etc)
