When a scheduled backup runs, does backup rotation happen before or after the new backup file is generated? For instance, if I set the “maximum scheduled backups to keep” to 1 (due to space limitations, let’s say), will the previous backup file be removed before or after the new backup is created?
I would hope it creates the backup first, then delete.
You should be able to test, or follow the command routine from nodeworx server settings, logs, iWorx, cron I think from memory
I hope that helps
Does InterWorx support server wide backups at one time? I’ve seen each user can request a backup / restore when they want, but how do I go about configuring a full server wide backup on a schedule?
Do I need to set up a cron job and use the CLI commands to do so?
Yes, you can backup server wide from nodeworx login, but it is still manual and not cron. Nodeworx, siteworx, backup/restore, select all resellers, tick all (shown at bottom) with select and chose your backup type.
Personally, I would either create your own cron job, or let the clients backup their own or use r1soft/idera
