runing scheduled backups when webmin is stopped

it seems that scheduled backups not working when webmin daemon is stopped? I turn it off for security reason. is it possible to run scheduled backups when stop webmin?

Howdy,

That is indeed true… Webmin launches the backups, as well as other items, itself. Those aren’t run via cron.

If you want to keep Webmin stopped most of the time, you may need to start it up from cron shortly before the backups need to run.

Hi!

thanks. so is this correct way?

a cron like:
59 23 * * * /etc/init.d/webmin restart

and set “Command to run after backup” to:
/etc/init.d/webmin stop
