I am having a problem configuring a backup for my system.
My system has one virtual server, vserver. Its home directory is /home/vserver. I also created a backup user and assigned /home/backup as its home directory and the Dropbox repository resides in /home/backup/Dropbox.
The problem is that my backup script is backing up the Dropbox repository. Since the backup is stored in the repository, it grows geometrically - and this is a really bad idea. Thus, I want to exclude /home/backup from the backup.
In my backup plan, the first thing I tried was to uncheck 'include homes directory', but I cannot uncheck this. Furthermore, I really do want to back up /home/vserver.
The next thing I considered was to put an entry in the box for 'Files to exclude from each domain', but there is no relative path under /home/vserver that gets me to /home/backup. (I am taking the definition of 'under' too literally, i.e., could I enter ../backup?)
Anyway, was hoping for some guidance/suggestions. Thanks.
