Backups get overwritten each time CRON job executes

Thank you for this wonderful script.

 

I noticed that I am unable to save multiple backups onto the server. It will only allow for one backup to be stored.

 

The backup gets overwritten with the new backup each time CRON job executes instead of allowing multiple backups to be stored.

 

Is this normal?

 

====================

 

Within the admin panel I have it set up to delete backups that are older than three days.  The CRON job is set up to run every 24 hours.

 

So this should allow me to have 3 backups stored on the server instead of just one (which is being overwritten) .

 

Is this normal ?

 

Or did I miss something within the settings ?

 

Look forward to your reply.

 

Thanks in advance.

Yes, it's normal if you have used a custom name for your backup, remove that and you will get a unique backup each time

Thank you very much.

 

And then once this is done the any files beyond 3 days will be deleted from the server.

 

Is that correct ?

Yes, if the delete backups older than x days option is activated.
