To prevent bloated archive files, we excluded bunch of such file extensions in the
Files to exclude from each domain section as:
and everything works as expected. However, the backup system turned out to be enforcing the same exclusion rules against the destination backup directory. That's why the
.backup subdirectory is always missing the database file, because it is compressed in
.gz format. So as a temporary solution we have removed the
.gz extension from our exclusion list above.
However, often time users place any kind of archive files, including in
.gz format in home directories, which need to be excluded from regular backups. So please fix this bug in a way that will works just as it is working now, but without applying exclusion rules towards the backup destination directory.
