In this tutorial I will show you, how to Force FTP SolusVM backups to run on a SolusVM slave.
FTP SolusVM backups can get stuck on a SolusVM slave. The way SolusVM backups run is it creates an image of the server whilst it’s still running then places that image into a dump file where it stays whilst it is uploaded to your backup server. If the upload is interrupted then the image will stay in the dump file and take up space. You should remove this file and follow the below to restart the SolusVM backups.
First, let’s remove the file that the server uses to run backups
rm -rf /usr/local/solusvm/tmp/ftpbackup.pid
Then you need to restart the FTP service again by issuing;
php /usr/local/solusvm/includes/autoftpbackup.php --mode=all --debug=1
