Please can you post the file /etc/vzdump.conf?

I've tried Dietmar, thanks, but once again the exclude-path directive that you've suggested in /etc/vzdump.conf is ignored.
don't know what do to...


p.s. yes, Luca, I'm backing up vz containers

You can only have one exclude-path config line, try:

exclude-path:  "/tmp/.+" "/var/www/html/cache/.+"

Subject: [PVE-User] vzdump & exclude-path

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 ..."?
