We need this option at CWP "URGENTLY" (PART 2)
« on: February 21, 2020, 04:46:55 PM »
Hello!

I don't quite understand why I've been blocked:

http://forum.centos-webpanel.com/index.php?topic=8338.msg28862;topicseen#msg28862

I was indicating a CWP error and I can't respond.

Following Sandeep's response:

first of all we didn't delete any user file whether it is 0 bytes. You can try incremental instead of compress.

I have it marked as incremental and I don't have that option. Am I doing something wrong?

can you elaborate more how the backups are creating in incremental (backup format) ?

The previous reply didn't seem related whatsoever to the question.  :o

It's a side issue but I have noticed files are left in the backup directory uncompressed, even though compressed was selected. Just as well I have allocated sufficient space in the backup partition.

I didn't understand the question very well, I'm attaching an image of how they are saving folder after folder indefinitely, since the account was created.

you can simply delete the dir for the date you don't want the backup.

Can you explain to me how to do it on servers when they have hundreds of accounts?

This should be a backup system option. I don't understand that answer.

Thus, as previously mentioned:
"Daily Backup Retention", "Weekly Backup Retention" and "Monthly Backup Retention" are meaningless. See OP supplied screenshot.
Also refer to my previous post/thread as to how backups should be done/configured.

For OP, I pointed you in the direction of backup culling, which could be run from a daily cron.

its super easy via command  you can add it to cron too (Don't say you don't know how to do it :P):

Code: [Select]
find /path/backup/* -type d -ctime +5 -exec rm -rf {} \;
+5 is the flag which will delete the directory older than 5 days
10 days = +10
15 days = +15

And why isn't it implemented in the backup system if it's so simple?

You know you can count on us for these improvements, we prefer it at the control panel level. "We're that lazy" hahaha

P.S. Waste 30 minutes of your time implementing that, it's necessary.
