    NFS and Backups

    Is it possible to change the location of where siteworx backups are made and store them on an NFS mount if possible?

    Hi Bertie

    I believe it could be changed but you maybe better just to rsync the backup to your nfs drive

    Iw has nfs as an option, which you could even move your /home directory to,

    Many thanks

    Is it possible to have like a /home2 so any new accounts would be stored on the /home2 directory instead then?

    Hi Bertie
    Many thanks, if I understand correctly, you want to create a new hosting folder called /home2 for any new accounts and leave the old hosting folder called /home, which is currently used for any previous siteworx accounts existent.
    The answer as far I understand it, would be no sorry
    Are you running out of space on the /home folder
    You could, as I said, use your NFS drive as the /home folder and move your existent /home to your NFS
    I suppose you could attempt to do your question, but in a lsightly different way, and that is rename the current /home to /home2, create a new /home (setting the perms etc correctly), and then you would have to manually change all the current vhost files paths to /home2 from /home.
    This is something I have not tried, and most likely could see potential issues by doing this, eg webmail, mail etc, so do so at your own risk
    I hope that helps
    Many thanks

    Hi Bertie

    Sorry a thought which might work, could you symlink backup folder to your nfs

    It would need fully testing though

    Many thanks

    John
