TCAdmin idea (server backups)


Recommended Posts



I've been using tcadmin for a while now and I must say, I've been loving it along with the great support. I'm writing this thread in hopes that it will be read and considered by the developers: I think TCAdmin needs a server backup option. Auto server backups would be a great add-on to tcadmin and a great thing for gameserver providers or communities to have - it could be linked with whmcs with an option to pay for the backup service. Admins would be able to select auto server backup of the whole directory or only selected directories files, which would then get uploaded locally to users' directory or optionally to an external FTP server. This would mean also allowing admins or server owners to use a backup they've created before.

It is possible to create a bash script that takes a backup, zips it, moves it to another server and another bash script that will download the backup script and unzips it. That's fairly easy. But, the script is not the best way to do it. The best way would be to have it implemented, allowing for selection of a backup in a dropdown or something like that.
