Backup function - does it backup the database?

    I've got an ISPconfig System running for some time now, I had backups enabled on some sites.

    I needed restore a sites' DB just now, but found that it doesn't look like the sql db is backed up? I've gone through each folder in the .tar.gz that gets created, but can't find it.

    Luckily, the whole ISPConfig system itself is also backed up, so I was able to go in there and get the file that I needed.

    So is the database really not included in the backup or am I missing something?

    the backup includes the databases, if they are connected to a website. otherwise you may find the db-backups in the web0-folder

    How can I check if the db is linked to the website?

    Look at the Database setting tab in ISPConfig. What Site: is written there.
