[PVE-User] vzdump & exclude-path

Hi,
we would like to exclude from the daily vzdump snapshots all unnecessary
web cache content (tipically /var/www/*/html/*/cache), and /tmp content of
course.

We've created /etc/vzdump.conf with

exclude-path: "/tmp/*"
exclude-path: "/var/www/html/cache/*"

as stated in http://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/VZDump, but its content does not
effect the daily backups (compressed snapshots) added through the web
interface.

Are we trying to do something that makes sense? or the only way is to
manually create custom cron backups with "vzdump --exclude-path ..."?

thanks
