In several of the threads and the documentation reagrding vmin backups, it is suggested doing a full filesystem backup using the webmin dump module and excluding certain directories (/proc, /dev, /lost+found, and /tmp ... others?). Wondering how to exclude directories from a filesystem dump of /
The file system manager will not let me chattr on /proc (says that directory doesn't suppoer ext features) And the file system manager on every browser I've tried ona Mac (Firefox, Safari, Opera) won't show ma the ext pop up[ menu for /dev. Will fo everything esle. So does this imply a command line dump or?
I did do a full back of of / without exclusions to a local file and the dump worked fine. What I'm after is the filesystem dump as part of a backup strategy:
Main drive fails
Install OS and partition drive
Install vmin(? see next step)
Restore filesystem backup with webmin (or do I need to do this with the command line dump without the vmin install above)?
Restore last vmin backup (which is a full backup with settings)
From what I have read, this should do the trick?
