I created a CRON job to back up all domains weekly. Did this in NodeWorx and this works great.
I then created a second CRON job to back up the mySql databases nightly. This didn’t go so well.
Here’s the CRON syntax in NodeWorx.
cd /home/interworx/cron ; /home/interworx/bin/backup.pex --domains=dss.com,sat.net --database only
What I got was full backups of the domains.
Thanks. That uses the --databases flag. I’ll try it.
One of socheat’s posts uses ‘–database only’ as a valid parameter.
Will report back.
Yup. You’re right. --databases worked great.
The backup and restore system has been changed a few times, I don’t remember the specifics but as a general rule it’s always a good idea to check the docs because they tend to have the most up to date info unless you have reason to believe otherwise.
