    Anyone knows if there's a way to tell the script that performs the backups to ignore some files or folders for a given site.

    Thanks in advance!

    Unfortunately the built in backup tool does not have this facility

    would this be an ideal opportunity for someone to put together a quick utility that will make a gzip file of each site to a certain location that we could schedule in cron?

    a config file that we could specify the locations we want included and only those are added.
    I think all that would be needed per site (for me anyway) are :
    /home
    /var/www/html
    /var/www/cgi-bin
    /var/spool/mail
    /etc/
    /var/lib/mysql

    That might save a few gigs storage for each server, not backing up unnecessary files.
    Could use sftp to remotey store them even...

    i'd donate a few quid if someone wrote something half decent...

    if there are any volunteers, maybe we could get a spec together by some suggestions here.. keeping it simple.

    I've already got exactly such a utility, Seanie. I'd be happy to post it here... especially if you want to donate some quid. ;)
