Website backup not working

    I have configured a daily backup for a website on ISPconfig panel (Sites > Website > Backup tab) but I noticed that sometimes the backup of files is not taken, and only the database backup is done, so the backup of files remains old. This happens randomly, and sometimes the backup is not taken for several days.

    I checked the log file at /var/log/ispconfig/cron.log and I've seen that when the backup is not taken there is the following error:

    tar: ./web/var/session: file changed as we read it

    How can I solve this issue?

    Thank you.


    ISPconfig version

    Thanks for your suggestion, it is very useful guide. But I would need to do the backups in a compressed format, like tar does, as I need to save disk space.

    So it would be great if I can combine rsync and tar (or similar tool) to send backups to the remote server in a compressed format. Do you have a guide for that?

    Thank you.
