 Backup limit per user, Limit for local and remote (9 Replies, Read 6234 times)

Hello,

We had some issues with some customers that setup automatic backup without any limit.
So we put a limit on 5 as shown in screenshot. It has worked fine, but now we have a couple of customers that has setup remote backup trough Softaculous to GDrive and Dropbox.
But this setting is also used for remote backup.
Could you please remove this limit or even better, get a setting for setting limit to remote backups??

Hi,

We have created two separate settings in admin panel :
Maximum backups per user (Local & Remote)
and
Maximum backups per user (Local)

You can choose the setting as per your needs.

Okay, thanks for the information Brijesh.

But I would like to know if a limit can be set only for the remote backups that will be independent from the local ones.

What I mean if is I set, for exemple :
  • Maximum backups per user (Local & Remote) : unlimited (or 25 for exemple)
  • Maximum backups per user (Local) : 3

It means that I can only make 3 backups locally and unlimted or any number of backups remotely?

In the end, my problem is that my web host is limiting all backups to a maximum of 3 actually and I would like to ask them to remove this limitation to remote backups only (and keep the local backup limit to 3) if the new settings can permit it.

Thanks!

I forgot to ask, but is it also possible to increase the backup rotation limit for remote backups independently of local backups like for the new backup limit option?

My host is also limiting the number of backup rotation to 1 so that's why I ask.

At least I can script on the remote side to keep more backups if I want but it would be a useful option to add if it don't exist currently.

First of all, sorry for the multiple posts, since it doesn't seems I cannot edit me previous ones.

So I've just come across your release notes for version 5.3.4 of Softaculous :
Quote
3) [Feature]: Added “Maximum backups per user (Local)” setting in Softaculous admin panel to restrict the maximum number of backups a user can create on the local server. The old setting “Maximum backups per user (Local & Remote)” can be used to restrict total number of backups irrespective of the location on which backup is done.

So I suppose it answers my question to the first of my two previous posts.

I suppose you can set the settings like so to be able to do unlimited amount of remote backups :
  • Maximum backups per user (Local) : 3
  • Maximum backups per user (Local) : unlimited (or unset?)

Hi,

Yes if the local backups is set (for eg 3) and local and remote backups is set as unlimited or unset you will be able to create unlimited backups on Remote server but you will be restricted to 3 backups on your local server.
