I have been running the backups for VM for some time and only recently had to check for a database backup. I have ALL settings checked on the configuration page including “Contents of server’s MySQL databases”. However, I have looked through the tarballs for the sites, including the ones for the subdomains, and there do not appear to be any database backups? Is this tool broken? Have I missed something? How can I get full mysql database backups for each domain and subdomain?
The MySQL backups should be within the .backup directory of your backup files.
If you run this command (which just views the file names and doesn’t extract them), you should see the filenames containing your MySQL data:
tar tzvf BACKUP_FILE.tar.gz | grep .backup| grep mysql
