DB Backups

Postby BanditBBS » Wed Apr 20, 2022 11:20 am

My DB backups are taking up a bit of space. I dont need them to run really if they are included in the night XI backup. Is it save to comment out the automysqlbackups in cron file? Or, where is the configuration telling it how many weekly and monthly backups?

Hi BanditBBS,

We have migrated to a new support environment and we are not accepting new threads on the forums at this time. Please open a ticket in the new environment so we can assist you with the issue there. I'll append the Answer Hub details below for convenience sake.
