SeaFile not Backing up with Archivist?

Hey everyone - still working on getting a reliable backup working with my RasperryPi system at home.

I’m getting this message in my daily Cron email from Archivist:

Make a temporary backup for rainloop_backup

This backup is different than the previous one

Make a real backup for rainloop_backup
4.9M /media/usb//ynh_backup/rainloop_backup.tar.gz

Is my Seafile app getting backed up? If not, how do I fix this?


Seafile has to be stopped before the backup, a socket file isn’t a regular file.
The first thing to do is to open an issue on the repository of seafile to inform the maintainer.
Meanwhile, you can stop and restart seafile by using the pre and post backup command of Archivist.
