    Hi

    I have setup "Incremental" backup on nfs mounted /backup
    The first run completed after a long time -- fine
    Daily cpbackup runs:

    Does the email come upon completion of the cpbackup run? I don't get any. During the initial trial with ftpbackup, there was a mail. But on switching over to Incremental mode (lower loads during backups), i have no mails.

    Additionally how does one see where the cpbackup operation is incrementally doing the same. This is my cpbackup.conf:

    BACKUPACCTS yes
    BACKUPDAYS 0,1,2,3,4,5,6
    BACKUPDIR /backup
    BACKUPENABLE yes
    BACKUPFILES yes
    BACKUPFTPDIR
    BACKUPFTPHOST
    BACKUPFTPPASS
    BACKUPFTPPASSIVE no
    BACKUPFTPUSER
    BACKUPINC yes
    BACKUPINT daily
    BACKUPLOGS yes
    BACKUPMOUNT no
    BACKUPRETDAILY 1
    BACKUPRETMONTHLY 1
    BACKUPRETWEEKLY 1
    BACKUPTYPE normal
    DIEIFNOTMOUNTED no
    MYSQLBACKUP both
    BACKUPCHECK yes
    BACKUP2 yes


    Any help on this would be welcome

    TIA
    Anup

    Now i see this in emails that arrive (incremental mode backup):

    pkgacctfile is: /backup/cpbackup/daily/cpusername.tar.gz

    However, there are no such files (arguably so as the backup mode is incremental), so why does cpbackup get this? Is it a bug or am i misunderstanding something?

    Also, if files are deleted from account, shouldnt't the backup also have that file removed? Curently, any additions are added to backup but any deletions do not get deleted from the backup. Incremental mode does offer a lower load during backups.

    TIA
