I installed Joomla 1.5 on the root dir (public_html) as my main site. I have also created subdomains (wiki, office, joomla25) which added subdir on the root.
The backup/restore of subdir apps works great.
Here is my problem, the main site at the root is small (about 17M total). When I do a backup it is well over 179M. I looked at the zip and all 3 subdomain are included in the backup. This is a problem.
If I ever needed to restore the root, then the subdir will be restored also. This is my dilema.
Is there a way to exclude this subdir from the root backup?
I prefer to use you backup/restore for easy of use. I would rather not use a different back. I had use the Akeeba backup (joomla ext) and it allowed exclusions for both dir & files.
Any news on this? I've got enormous subdomain (around 5GB) and I really don't have to backup it. But the main domain is in stable editing process. Every time I backup I have to get a gigantic backup. Guys let me know what can I do!
I'm actually trying to exclude sub domains folders not include them during backup.
By the way software in the sub domain folder is not supported in Softaculous as far as I'm aware - ResourceSpace.
In the main root (public_html), I've got wordpress installation. I also have subdomain folder like: assets.domain.com which contains that 20GB medias. When I backup that WordPress installation, it get 20GB in every backup as includes subdomain folder.
As to my original post, the replies seem to indicate the functionality is there. I looked and it is NOT. The question is to be able to exclude specifically indicated subdir within a domain backup. For example, not to include a subdir containing huge video files within the backup. Or to exclude a single file. Most all backup software I have used in past does have the ability to selectively include or exclude directories or files.
Is this feature available on the backup program used in Softaculous? If not , is it planned?
I see this new functionality - is there anyway to exclude a folder that is part of the install (i.e. there is a cache folder included in the installation by default, which there is no reason to backup)
