[Box Backup] Backing UP the root filesystem
Wed, 1 Feb 2006 07:02:18 +0100
I am using boxbackup-0.9 and I tried to backup the root filesystem using
boxbackup and run into a few troubles:
- bbackupd-config doesn't allow me to configure '/' to be backed up. I
wonder why 'It is not recommended that you backup the root directory of your
disc' in the first place?
- So I edited /etc/box/bbackupd.conf manually afterwards to fit my needs:
Path = /
ExcludeFile = /etc/box/bbackupd/1-FileEncKeys.raw
ExcludeFile = /home/sithglan/media
ExcludeDir = /webfarm
ExcludeDir = /data
ExcludeDir = /dev/shm
The problem now is, that bbackupd does ignore my ExcludeDir Entries. It still
tries to backup data from /data. I have no idea why so far but did not look at
the sourcecode either.
I also would like to see a direction similliar to ExcludeDir which tells
bbackupd to stay on the same filesystem while doing the backup. like 'find -xdev'
