    I was looking into backup scripts for ISPConfig3 so I could backup all of my sites to Amazon S3. I found that it appears ISPConfig3 already does its own backup since 3.0.5 :D
    When I looked in the backup directroy the only backup folder is ispconfig_2013-09-04_00-14 which is fair out of date.
    Is there anyway to manually run a backup script? Should this be a cronjob by default?

    You can enable the website backus on the backup tab of the website settings.

    Ohh, I see. Is there any way to make that automatically on for new websites? or a way to mass enable it for all sites?

    I'll enable it now for a few sites and check again tomorrow if anything has updated.
    I assume this is part of the cron_daily cronjob? I'll look at integrating my S3 backup after that script has executed.

    I ran /usr/local/ispconfig/server/ just to test it out. Got a few warnings about webalizer not being installed (missing /etc/webalizer/webalizer.conf), and then a few mysqldump errors for missing root password. I think I updated it at some point, where can I manually go update this for ispconfig?

    be carefully with running cron_daily manually, as your traffic statistics will be wrong when you start it more then once a day.

    We don't use daily stats so that is fine :)

    That got my backups to happen, got web11, web13 and web26 in /var/backup which will be the three I enabled it for. They had the relevant website/db backups.

    Still have the ispconfig_2013-09-04_00-14, I assume this was from when I ran an update. Is there a way to get ispconfig to backup its settings as well?
