I need to exclude .flv file types from my cpanel backups by doing the following:

http://docs.cpanel.net/twiki/bin/view/AllDocumentation/WHMDocs/CpbackupExclude

However I'm not sure what the command should be. Is it...

*/.flv

Does the above mean exclude files that end with ".flv" ?

Hi,

according to the link you posted the entry in /home/user/cpbackup-exclude.conf should be:

*/*.flv

Note the second asterisk *!

The first one "wildcards" any leading directory/directories, the second one is a wildcard for any filename preceeding ".flv".
