Where are backup files stored (intermediate)?


I´m setting up our backups to our offsite FTP server. While playing around, some backups aren´t working. Now I wanted to check the directory for obsolete files. But /root/backup isn´t there, and I couldn´t find another reference for the tmp-files.

Also, I couldn´t find the database backup in the backups. I ticked the box in the features list, but where is the backup stored?

Can somebody bring some light into the dark please?

Regards Johannes

If your backups are being sent to a remote server, then they would only reside in the Webmin temp directory on your local server until they're copied to the remote server. By default, that is in /tmp/.webmin.

Also, the MySQL backups are stored in the ".backups" directory of your backup archive.
