Backup /var/www/nextcloud


#1

Hello,

I have a question about backup. I have more than 800 employees and I want to backup up /var/www/nextcloud and I can not put the server on maintenance mode. can you please guide me.

Thank you in advance.

with 800 employees and this “mission critical” question, imho, it’s time for an enterprise subscription. :wink:

if you can’t set maintenance mode on do it without. maybe some files that were open during backup are broken. and if someone shared a file via weblink and this link will be gone. (because the database and the files on disc are “out-of-sync”.)

if you are running on a virtual machine and/or a filesystem that supports snapshots you may just make snapshots of the whole machine/filesystem.
