    Hi guys,

    I have tried to create an automatic way to backup all the ISPConfig configurations, mails, and server configurations. How to improve it? Any idea?

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    DATE=`date +%F`
    
    COPY_TO=/mnt/mydisk
    USER=root
    PASSWORD=***** [YOURPASSWORD]
    HOST=localhost
    
    mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/mydisk/
    
    echo "";
    echo "************************************";
    echo "       ISP CONFIG BACKUP";
    echo "************************************";
    echo "";
    
    mkdir -p $COPY_TO/ispconfig/$DATE
    
    echo "Wait a moment please...";
    
    echo "1. Make a backup of /var/spool/mail";
    /etc/init.d/postfix stop
    cd /var/spool
    tar -czf $COPY_TO/ispconfig/$DATE/mail.tar.gz mail
    
    echo "2. Copy the passwd file";
    cp /etc/passwd $COPY_TO/ispconfig/$DATE
    
    echo "3. Copy the shadow file";
    cp /etc/shadow $COPY_TO/ispconfig/$DATE
    
    echo "4. Copy the group files";
    cp /etc/group $COPY_TO/ispconfig/$DATE
    
    echo "5. Copy the Vhosts_ispconfig.conf file";
    cp /etc/httpd/conf/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf $COPY_TO/ispconfig/$DATE
    
    echo "6. Copy the local-host-names file";
    cp /etc/postfix/local-host-names $COPY_TO/ispconfig/$DATE
    
    echo "7. Copy the postfix/virtusertable file";
    cp /etc/postfix/virtusertable $COPY_TO/ispconfig/$DATE
    
    echo "8. Copy the named.conf file";
    cp /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf $COPY_TO/ispconfig/$DATE
    
    echo "9. Copy the proftpd.conf file";
    cp /etc/proftpd.conf $COPY_TO/ispconfig/$DATE
    
    echo "10. Copy the proftpd_ispconfig.conf file";
    cp /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf $COPY_TO/ispconfig/$DATE
    
    echo "11. Backup of the ISPConfig Databse";
    mysqldump \
            -u$USER -p$PASSWORD -h$HOST \
            -Q -c -C --add-drop-table --add-locks --quick --lock-tables \
            db_ispconfig | gzip --best -c > $COPY_TO/ispconfig/$DATE/db_ispconfig.sql.gz;
    
    
    echo "Restart Postfix"
    /etc/init.d/postfix start
    
    echo "End of procedure";

    why don't you start postfix again after you have copied the spool?

    Look at the bottom of the file ;)

    yeah, but do do you start it at the end of the backup script and not when copying spool is finished? That's just what wonders me ;)

    1. curlftpfs - to mount a ftp host as a local directory (if no external HD)
    2. DATE=$(date +%d) - so you'll get 01-31 dirs and have older ones overwritten automatically
    3. at the end
      Code:
      if [ $(date +%d) == 01 ]; then
        echo "Monthly Backup"
        mkdir -p $COPY_TO/ispconfig/$(date --date=-1day +%b) / name of previous month e.g. Oct
        cp mkdir -p $COPY_TO/ispconfig/$DATE $COPY_TO/ispconfig/$(date +%b)
      fi
      So you keep a monthly backup for up to 12 month Jan-Dez and have older ones overwritten automatically

    Well, I am just wondering as to why do start the server at the end again and not at the end of the actual operation :) You may have good reasons for that and I'm curious so to what those are :)
