    So I've been running ISPConfig for the past 7 years. Recently my hard disks (RAID1) completely failed. The disks are now with a specialized company to try and recover as much data as possible...

    However, if they can't find the original DBs, they should be able to find the backups right? Usually you do this vai the ISPConfig interface, which moves them to the websites backup folder these folders were on another disk, but the backup folders are empty...

    So where would ISPConfig store the original backups? And what format are they?

    Backups are stored in /var/backup/, unless you configured a different location.

    [ID] is the ID of the website.




    e.g. db_c0mydb_2019-02-18_00-08.sql.gz



    e.g. web1_2019-02-19_00-10.tar.gz

    and ispconfig backups that are created during updates are stored in var/backup too, e.g.:

    [email protected]:/tmp# ls /var/backup
    ispconfig_server1.example.com_2018-05-23_22-47 ispconfig_server1.example.com_2018-10-18_07-03 ispconfig_server1.example.com_2019-02-19_02-34
    ispconfig_server1.example.com_2018-10-05_09-00 ispconfig_server1.example.com_2018-12-14_11-05

    Thank you very much, hopefully we can find those files on any of the disks...
