Fixing backup module
RE: Fixing backup module
Great to see you are sorting out the backup module Smile Any reason for using bash scripts over PHP? Surely PHP makes for far more cross-platform code - remember Sentora/ZPanel is designed to with all UNIX operating systems and not just Linux. I think it would make more sense to carry on using PHP where possible to maintain compatibility.

Your script is broken on my FreeBSD Sad but works on Ubuntu Smile
Before posting, update your profile with your OS, Sentora version and server type!

RE: Fixing backup module
why broken on freebsd? Didn't target it.

For me shell is more efficient. No time out risk, less overhead under php. Also I can do the same for windows! ( we could too for freebsd ). Notice I think more about wiping out zsudo and tightening the security to lock down totally sentora.

And also I was preparing to work on installers so I wanted a quick fix. It would easily as I said scale to per user settings. Love how it hack mysql into bash.

I can imagine later a restore script that could be triggered by users too... Imagine you can restore the backup in 2 clicks. It's not so hard to do.

RE: Fixing backup module
Ill be happy to test this guy out for you too me.b give me day or so and ill get back to you with results. this seems more viable as a migration system as well taking it out of php makes it so average joes cant use it considering it backs up databases etc (i suppose we could do this with permissions in the panel too but oh well). Ill be using it to attempt a migration from 12.04 to 14.04 D: hopefully it wont have the number of issues ive been experiencing doing it by hand.

Perhaps we can integrate this is part of the admin section. there are a few php based ssh terminals out there. perhaps embed a terminal where you can see the output of the script but not interact. at the end it would give you the filename and location and close the session that way there isnt any risk of exploit of the terminal and we can go in and get that file as needed. just a thought

I have modified your script to obtain:
-backup for only one domain
-backup for only one database
-no junk path in compressed files
-.htaccess included in compressed files

I did this because i am hosting more than one domain in my account, but i am working only in one domain.
So i want the backup to be made for that domain only.

It would be nice to have in the Sentora backup module these options...

Also, THANK YOU SENTORA DEVS for a great hosting software!

-the code is now messed up,and some variables may be redundant, but it's working
-put the code where you want
-fill with your datas:

-chmod to script so you can run it:
chmod u+x /path/to/file/

-remove the break lines if there are any:
sed -i 's/\r//' /path/to/file/

-run the script

date=$(date +"%d-%b-%Y_%H_%M")
clearday=45 #delete backups older than XX days apply to all zip files
echo "Backup starting"
mysqlpassword=$(cat /etc/sentora/panel/cnf/db.php | grep "pass =" | sed -s "s|.*pass \= '\(.*\)';.*|\1|")
touch $errorlogfile

RE: Fixing backup module
Been thinking too about adding 2 fileds in the DB so you keep more history for db's than files ( use less space ) and per account setting history to keep too ( enable/ disable), but need to be added in the GUI too.

Thanks for the update.
