I am trying to make a script to backup each of my plesk hosts to individual files, I am having two problems:
- I would like to remove the folder structure from archive, the tar is 3 folders deep
- I am getting this error: tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
- I need my archive to ignore folders named "catch" because I don't need them in my archive.
FILES=/var/www/vhosts/* FNAME="" for f in $FILES do FNAME=`basename $f` tar cfv "/root/backup/ftp/$FNAME.tar" $f done
tar: Removing leading `/' from member names /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/ /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/conf /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/etc/ /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/etc/group /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/etc/termcap /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/etc/passwd /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/usr/
