Server Backup Manager allows you to protect the Linux Home Directory on the Server. As a standard subdirectory of the root directory, the purpose of /home is to contain users' home directories. Server Backup allows you to backup and restore Linux users' accounts.
The following objects are protected and restored:
- the /home directory and all sub-directories
- all files in these directories
The following accounts are excluded during the replication:
To protect the Linux Home Directory, enable the Hosting Control Panel feature. See Enable the Hosting Control Panels feature.
Linux Home Directories functionality is mainly used when there is no any Control Panel installed on the Server. If a Control Panel is installed and two Instances have already been added, including the Linux Home Directories, you won't be able to use the functionality mentioned above.
Henceforth, the Linux Home Directory on Unix-like operating systems is referred to as the /home directory. For more information about /home directories, see http://www.linfo.org/home_directory.html.
This application retrieves the users' /home directory using the standard Linux API.
The following Backup Manager interface elements help you protect your Linux Home Directories:
- The Control Panels tab in the Edit Policy window and Create New Policy window
- The Control Panels tab in the Task History
- The Control Panel Users action in the Recovery Points list
