    I have checked my crontab and the automated backup is running.

    05 02 * * * /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/backup.php &> /dev/null

    But where should the result-files be located ? I don't find them in the users-directory, nor on another place on the server.
    Also, when I go under the tools-section in the web-interface and I want to backup all my sites, I recently get instead of the zip-file the ability to download the backup.php-file.
    This is since I put a very large webshop on my server. When I exclude this webshop, I can download the backup.
    Anybody who can help me ?

    Did you enable the backup in the file /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/

    The backup in the interface can not handle very large backups due to browser timeouts.

    Thx, I did,'t found that config before.

    Additional question : can I change the location of the backups ? 'cause now it will take up users space and will shrink down the quota of the user.

    Yes, but only by modifying the backup.php script.
