How to turn off email notification of Full Backup Report

Post by bfcrew »

Hi dpeca,

First of all, thanks for this awesome fork project.
Somehow I would like to turn off the email notification of Full Backup Report.
Is there anyway I could do that?
Or how if I want to replace the email address to something else.

Regards,
bfcrew

In /usr/local/vesta/conf/vesta.conf
delete line NOTIFY_ADMIN_FULL_BACKUP=

Sometimes backup is broken for many reasons (no disk space or configuration files are somehow broken), so it's good to get once per week info email about health status of your backups :)

Once in a week is fine, but somehow I get it everyday.

How to change the frequency?

as admin, go to CRON
find sudo /usr/local/vesta/bin/v-backup-users
check day of week field, should be 6 for example.

I just make it default for future installations - https://github.com/myvesta/vesta/commit ... a3fd05e6ff

Thanks for pointing me to this.

Just a little correction - day of week should be 6
(last field)

third field day is day of month.
should be *
