SOLVED - Exclude "ignoring" double wildcards?


#1

Hi,

I need to exclude files using 2 wildcards, as example:

/vz/root/*/proc/*

How can I do this ? I need to backup all the other files in /vz/root/*/*/

Thanks,

Pieter

Your problem probably is that * includes the slash.

The special : matches everything but slash, so exclude /vz/root/:/proc/*


#3

How often does the client get the settings from the server ?

I have the following on the server and it is still trying to do it:

/dev/*;/proc/*;/sys/*;/usr/local/var/urbackup/*;/var/lib/lxcfs/cgroup/*;/srv/urbackup/*;/var/lib/php/sessions/*;/vz/root/:/dev/*;/vz/root/:/proc/*;/vz/root/:/sys/*;

Thanks !

Hi

if it s an equivalent of /proc on linux , or some other sysfs
Then; you can t really get whats inside, it’s not real files, it s only the process list and the information about each process. Better just ignore that folder.

It is, and that is what I am trying to do, exclude the directories :slight_smile:

SOLVED - For anyone trying to backup VZ containers, use the following excludes:

/vz/root/:/dev/*;/vz/root/:/proc;/vz/root/:/sys/*;

I think VZ is messing with “something” here and the “/proc” directory breaks things - this way appears to work just fine :slight_smile:
