    Hi,

    In this environment we are gathering statistics via the eximstats DB and occasionally this becomes quite large.

    I'm looking to have this excluded from cpbackup so it's not backing up the raw DB. cpbackup is doing a full copy of the tables (not a dump).

    My question is, what would be the best way to exclude the eximstats database from cpbackup?

    Are you backing up the databases "Per Account Only" or " Entire MySQL Directory" or both?

    Hello :)

    The backup exclusion feature does not apply when backing up the entire MySQL directory. I recommend switching to "Per Account Only" for SQL backups to avoid backing up the entire "eximstats" database.

    Thank you.
