Is there a way to change the location of where a SQL backup is initially generated? IE: instead of C: make it a specific folder on the D:. This question is not about where the users says download to browser or to a location in the hosting space. But the location on the SQL Server itself where the backup is first created. Currently this is causing some issues as we limit the C: space and when a user has a very large database there is sometimes no room for it on the C:.
The options are available for 2016, however remote SQL isn’t supported for 2016 (as it still has the is-installed check besides for 2017 and 2019_
Thank you – we will look to get updated. Will this work on the sql 2016 provider?
Update 1.4.7 has been released which includes the Remote SQL settings which might of affected my screenshots earlier.
Please note this is for 2017 and 2019 provider.
Once updated to 1.4.7 it should show these options for you.
Thanks that has been where i was looking. Here are screenshots of my sql servers properties and I dont see that option.
It’s in the portal –> configuration –> Servers –> servername –> mssql server properties atleast for me. (Do note mine been used to test the remote mssql / mysql features, but the backup location was a pre-existing property as far as i remember).
running 1.4.6. To confirm where are the settings you are referring to located? Is this in the portal under server service properties or in a dotnet .config file for the sql servers?
Do you have the latest SolidCP installed?
As in my mssql provider settings i have a section called “backup options”
one is SolidCP Server backup path: and the other is Network path or linux mount point:
(The last one you most likely do not have yet as it’s an option we made for remote mssql features which will be released in 1.4.7 on monday).
Where is the setting: “SolidCP Server backup path:” located? I dont see that on the sql service server settings?
Does the “SolidCP Server backup path:” not do what you need?
Correct that is the location that I want to change / configure solidCP not to use. Any ideas?
