on our Moodle site (Moodle 3.5) we run automated course backups which is configured here:
"backup_auto_storage" for instance is switched to:
"Course Backup filearea and the specified directory"
That runs very well except for too files with different error messages
in the backup logs.
1.) Course abc
4:45:08 AM - backup_auto_failed_on_course Course abc
4:45:08 AM - Exception: storedfilecannotcreatefile
4:45:08 AM - Debug:
2.) Course xyz
4:45:19 AM - backup_auto_failed_on_course Course xyz
4:45:19 AM - Exception: cannot_create_directory /datafolder/moodle/temp/backup/16cd81afd25ae096b082568ededfeda4/files/bc
4:45:19 AM - Debug:
Can you explain what is the prob here. I was able to create a course backup maunally
via the web interface.
The "/datafolder" represents a partition.
That leads onto something else. For days now I see that the /datafolder - partition (size: 380 G) gets full every second day. The trashfolder /datafolder/moodle/trashdir grows rapidly. E.G.100 G a day.
One day the partition was even full.
Can you get we started here on hoe to limit the data growth in the trash folder and
on how to repair the Course backup ?
Thanks a lot!
