folder and file permissions


when we are running automated scheduled backup of the Virtual servers, is the permissions for
files and folders the same when this virtual server is restored ?

We have some sensitive web pages with special permissions on the .htaccess files, so I am
just not sure is something goes wrong with the website, and when we restore it will these
permissions remain the same as they was when backed up ?

PS: I am talking about 2 restore scenarios:

  1. restore on the same server

  2. restore on another physical server running virtualmin

Thank You



Essentially in terms of files in the “home” directory, it’s quite simply making a “tar.gz” of the relevant directories, “as-is”, therefore the permissions should be getting preserved, along with ownership.

Hope this helps!
