Can't you simple post (attach) the whole file?

I removed empty lines, and now at least I get an error:

WARN: unable to parse configuration file '/etc/vzdump.conf' - error at line 9

where the (only) non commented line 9 in /etc/vzdump.conf is
exclude-path:  "/tmp/.+" "/home/httpd/www.mysite/html/var/ezwebin_site/cache/.+"

so I guess I should avoid empty lines?
(btw, there is an empty line on http://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/VZDump, too)

Yes, Dietmar, it's just one line of data + some comments (and some empty lines...;)

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...

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

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

Subject: [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
