Complete Backup system


Avatar

Backup/Restore system. It needs to be more complete and have more location options. You need to be able to choose “who, what, when, where, and how”.
Who: All good here.
What: is good.
When: I think cron covers this.
Where: local, ftp, sftp, AWS, BackBlaze and others. You also need to be able to restore from all locations.
How: Full, incremental, both, and except list. It should include logic based on type chosen example Incremental > full back up= weekly, monthy ect.
Restore: should accommodate from all “Where” and all “How”

Good that it's planned. Please also repare the bug that admin packages are not restored using admin backup/restore.

Given the release of JB5 now, I honestly think there are other areas your time could be invested in - the backup system in place currently in DirectAdmin is still fully functional.

Anyone who requires off-site backups currently on cPanel servers, still end up using JetBackup, or any other alternative solution as opposed to the one packaged within the software itself.

I think instead of trying to build something in DirectAdmin which does the same as JetBackup, it would be best leaving them to their own area of expertise, and instead invest in a partnership between you both, so you are able to benefit from the licences sold.

There are certain areas within a system, that there are justifications for paying licence fee's for 3rd party products/integrations, and I do feel backups is just one of those areas that its perfectly acceptable.

I halfway completely agree:

1. directadmin develops the management panel, it is not a software house specialized in 100% of technologies
2. directadmin has a basic backup and restore function that works very well, BUT it cannot be used on a large scale for those who do mass hosting
3. there are companies specialized in making backup software, they do just that .... is there a reason?

Therefore?
I don't think Directadmin should invest in the backup system at the moment.

This is one of the core features that DirectAdmin neglects badly. Don't know what's wrong with these guys think of Backups/Restore section without any popular remote destinations like aws s3 / google drive / onedrive etc. This should be added on priority for next release of update. I hope DirectAdmin dev team will consider this request.

This is a priority for almost all web hosting companies.

I would recommend that DA team really would consider adding this feature.

Does Borg let you back up to AWS or cloud options? Like Restic does?

Andreas Bezuh

Maybe the implementation of Borg Backup or a plugin would make sense.
