BACKUPNINJA.CONF - Configuration file(s) for backupninja (1).
 
 

SYNOPSIS

/etc/backupninja.conf
 

DESCRIPTION

backupninja.conf is the general configuration file. In this file you can set the log level and change the default directory locations. You can force a different general configuration file with "backupninja -f /path/to/conf".

2 = Errors
 
1 = Fatal errors
 
reportemail
Send a summary of the backup status to this email address
 
reportsuccess
If set to 'yes', a report email will be generated even if all modules reported success.

when
When to process each configuration file. The value used here will be applied for each configuration file. It is possibile to override this "when" in each each configuration file, see also section "Scheduling" in backup.d(5).
 
For example:
 

when = sundays at 02:00
when = 30th at 22
when = 30 at 22:00
when = everyday at 01 <-- the default
when = Tuesday at 05:00
 
These values for 'when' are equivalent:

when = TUESDAYS at 05
 
These values for 'when' are invalid:
 

when = tuesday at 2am
when = tuesday at 2
when = tues at 02
 
vservers
If you are using Linux-Vservers (http://linux-vserver.org), there are some special capabilities that different handlers have to make vserver backups easier. See the example configuration files for each handler to configure the vserver specific variables.
