Can't find Zimbra backup script in Ubuntu 8
Posted on 2011-02-10
I have a client that is running Ubuntu on 2 of his servers. One is their mail server which is zimbra 6 running on linux Ubuntu 8. I have no previous experience with linux and only know what I have been able to google on CLI commands and the use of Winscp to look at files. My problem is that I can't find the script that is backing up the zimbra mail files each night. I know it is there somewhere because I get a backup folder with files created at 12:30 am each night. From my reading I have learned that scripts like this should run from cron. But there is no script in the cron folders (daily,weekly,monthly,etc) that deal with zimbra. According the the documentation on the zimbra version, this is the free version and does not include the backup functionality. And I have not found any scripts in the zimbra folders that look to address backups. I have looked at all the .sh files I can find and none are backup scripts for zimbra.
I need to change the location of the backups and set up a deletion scheme to delete backups over X days old.
How can I find out what is creating the backup folders?
