Full Backup (Excluding AWStats)

I’m using the terrific backup tool to backup our site and then push the backup over SCP to a dedicated server to hold the files in the same data center.

Today I looked and our main site has a compressed size of 1.9GB! After a little investigation we discovered that 1.5GB of this is data created by AWStats? Thats over 75%

Is there a way to take a full backup excluding this data?

Sure is. Check out the documentation:

Specifically, the --backup-options parameter. You’ll want to do something like this:

 --backup-options all no-stats 

You are a gentleman. :slight_smile:

It’s now 272MB from 1.9GB!! Excellent.

Thank you.
