    Hi! I'm having some issues changing the backup dir of my daily automysqlbackup.

    I've verified my cron.daily job is:
    /usr/local/bin/automysqlbackup /etc/automysqlbackup/myserver.conf

    in /etc/automysqlbackup/myserver.conf I've changed this line:
    # Backup directory location e.g /backups
    #CONFIG_backup_dir='/u02/backup/db'

    And yet my daily backups still go to /var/backup/db - am I missing something here?

    Thanks!

    If your example is a copy and past from your conf file, the problem is that you need to remove the hash from the front of the line so that it is now longer commented out.

    # Backup directory location e.g /backups
    CONFIG_backup_dir='/u02/backup/db'

    Wow, I must've had the blinders on when I was looking at this. Thanks!
