I'm backing up a website located in the public_html directory of a user. So my conf file has this backup line:
backup user < at > domain.com:/home/username/public_html/website backupdir
Which backs the site up in the snapshot_root of my backup computer in this directory:
I'd like to omit the empty directories in the backup and have this in my snapshot root
Sometimes I can shorten the path making a symlink /website that points to the site and then use the symlink in the backup line, but I don't always have access to the root user for sites I'm backing up.
I've tried using relative paths in the backup line but they don't seem to work, and I didn't see anything in the man page to indicate it was possible.
Still, I'm hoping I've just missed something in the documentation.
Any way to change the backup path in the snapshot_root directory?
