Limit backups to selected dir


Is there a way to limit what folders the backup actually backs up?
my server is at home and is also host to my media (many GB worth) and when I ran
backup last it tried to tar.gz it all and failed when the HDD space was depleted

the folder I wish to ignore is /home/media
but still wish to backup all the yunohost stuff


Hi, the backup ignores the /home/yunohost.*
This is why in the YunoHost Multimedia architecture the media folder has been named /home/yunohost.multimedia.

I therefore recommend you to change the name of your folder to, or use the YunoHost multimedia architecture that hopefully will become standard for all the multimedia apps (see this topic - in French sorry)



Thank you so much!

I tried to install the yunohost.multimedia package and I’m getting an error

root@epoc: # wget

For your need I think it would be easier to just rename your media folder into

If you nevertheless want the full yunohost multimedia architecture:
wget -nv
sudo ./yunohost.multimedia-master/script/

ah sorry,
I renamed the folder but I thought I’d do the whole thing
google translate wasn’t very helpful

thank you again !!!
