« on: April 14, 2016, 02:00:21 PM »
Hi,

How can i ignore a directory?

For example /home/user/video directory has 5k videos, i do not want to backup the video directory.

you can disable backup for that account and create some custom script for backup

A native option like cpbackup-exclude.conf for cPanel could be very useful.
I use it to excluding cache files using a pattern, so I can save a lot of backup space and speeding up the backup operation.

Agreed, exclusions are an essential part of any backup regime and is standard practice. Otherwise it's just an amateur approach.
Running a server/VPS means YOU take responsibility to learn how to do it properly. If you can't manage, buy shared hosting.
