Hi,

I have set an exclusion in my cronjob for two directories  /home/mysite/public_html/backups and /home/mysite/public_html/SUBDOMAIN

The Cron job works fine, but when I untar the file, a subdirectory in backups and the SUBDOMAIN and all its subfiles is present, making my backup huge.

Is there a special setting to exclude sub directories?

The cron config looks like this below

$_CONFIG['cron_exclude']="/home/mysite/public_html/backups
/home/mysite/public_html/SUBDOMAIN";

Thanks for your help

Hmm, could you post here a screenshot from your XCloner Config Cron tab with the exclude files list? Ovidiu

Can I email it to you as it contains my home filesystem and I dont really want that being made public – I could then mail the screenshots of the actual filesystems and config files as well?

I have added a contact us entry so that you have my email address – if you can respond to it, I can attach the screen prints.

 

Thanks for your understanding
