Allow client to stop backup

Currently the clients are only allowed to pause a backup that is currently running. How difficult is it to allow the same client to stop a backup as well?

This is assuming that the client has no access to the server management interface.

Okay, will think about adding that.

Is it going to be very code intensive? Can you advise on the functions/class that i can probably use if i want to try adding this feature myself first?


  • New button on the client interface + messages
  • New message from interface to backend
  • Message from backend to server (to ServerChannelThread)
  • Server logic to stop the backup (use ServerStatus::stopBackup)

It is a little bit of work.
