How to change default target directory on backup server
« on: June 09, 2016, 05:33:34 AM »
Right now backup is working fine -- my server is logging in OK, and uploading all backups to the directory: /home/user/cwp_remote

But what if I want to use a different directory than that? How do I change it?

I'd like my backups to be somewhere outside the home folder, like /backup

Yes, but that solution would keep the original /cwp_remote directory in the home directory.
I'm trying to keep my home directory really clean (some people like it that way), so I'm wondering can I just change it?

So is changing the (one and only) remote directory to something other than
/home/USER/cwp_remote

is impossible then?
